Can anybody explain why a seemingly healthy 10-month-old baby (I keep taking him to the pediatrician and all I get as a diagnosis is either 'viral' or 'teething') gets up a hundred times a night, is irritable and cries, sometimes wanting to drink formula botties all night, at other times fighting the botties, but crying and crying... We are walking around like zombies...

I would take the child to a GI and evaluate for reflux. Don't let them just give you a prescription for zantac, because that's like giving water.
Does he cry during the day too, or only at night?

He is pretty unhappy during the day too and you can see that he so badly wants to be happy. He has an adorable engaging personality, he loves nothing better than to giggle at our silly antics and he is a real cutie, albeit a very unhappy one.

On the other hand, hb, can it be teething? He is 10.5 mths. old, not a tooth in sight, yet his gums are really not all that swollen, so I'm really confused.

Sorry your cutie is so unhappy. We usually check teething, ears, and (maybe in Israel this is more common so no offense intended) worms whenever there is night time unhappiness before we assume anything really wrong. The day time kvetching could be because he isn't sleeping well. Next thing to think about is allergies,or rather sensitivities which may not showup on a scratch test but are making him feel uncomfortable anyway, and finally, Sensory Integration issues, all of which can make a nice cute kid feel lousy and uncomfortable with himself.
