half rxn or ionization

How do you distinguish a conceptual half-reaction from an actual ionization?

I think you just have to know which molecules actually form ionic bonds, and assume all the others are just conceptual.

I think half reactions do not give the state of the reactants and products, like (aq), (s), or (g).

How do you find spectator ions in a half reaction?
