Set 'sync to' to JACK/host, you should see the tempo switch to whatever Hydrogen's is.
Set quantize to cycle.
Set the 8ths/cycle to something related to your drum-loop's length, if it was 4/4, setting it to 8 would let you quantize on bar boundaries, 16 would be 2-bar boundaries, etc.
Enable 'sync' on your loop
Now just hit record whenever you want it will wait until a bar boundary (or however you set 8ths/cycle), and start recording. You play your stuff until almost two loops have passed, then hit record again, it will wait until the boundary to actually finish the record, you can keep playing through. If you end the record with Overdub instead it will go immediately into overdub (after quantizing).
Now, SL is designed to be "played", it won't do things automatically unless you have something else script it by sending it commands via midi or OSC. So your notion of doing things exactly once, or after two loops, etc... won't readily be accomodated without more work. Probably that's OK, since you want to be interactive anyway, right?
