There are several recipes for stir-fry sauces here:

Cooks.com - Recipes - Stir Fry Sauce

I noticed none of you mentioned using chicken or beef broth in your sauces. I am no expert, but the ones I have made always used one or the other.

We get by with a little help from our friends

I use a similar combination, hoisin, oyster sauce and soy sauce. I don't add sugar though, because the hoisin is already sweet enough for me. I like to stir fry rice noodles with that sauce combination. I soak the noodles until they are bendable. Probably 30 minutes, then I stir fry them. I have been using this recipe for a while now and it's turned out really well each time. I add some soy sauce at the end though. The recipe is a little different since it says to marinate the meat with the sauce, then stir fry, instead of adding the sauce to the whole tihng.

I like the PaDang Thai peanut sauce when I have no time to make my own. Great on chicken salmon veg etc.

Stir-fries are easy to make. It's the least time consuming thing to make in my opinion. I usually stock my house with soy sauce, fish sauce and some sort of oil. So, to make a yummy delicious stir fry. I would brown some garlic and/or ginger (basically some spices, if you're daring throw in some curry at the end), then brown the meat (if desired) throw in some sort of vegetables, add some salt, a little bit of sugar, finish it off with a little fish sauce or soy sauce. It should be yummy.

Stir-fry is the first thing I've ever actually learn how to make. Experiment with different things like garlic or ginger or sesame or a combination. Add lemon or lime to add some zest into it. Cook with different type of oil like peanut oil, sesame oil, or coconut oil, etc. For taste and flavor you would want. As for hoisin sauce, oyster sauce, and teriyaki sauce. I rarely use them. Unless, I specifically want that specific taste. But it's really up to you.

It's all about creativity really. Good luck.
