Update connector parameter question

I have a few general questions with regard to parameters on update connectors.

 

What I have seen, and used with success, on update connectors is a first parameter
that tells the connector which record to update.  Typically, this is done with the setting
of a dynamic document property inside of a map before the update connector.
This is followed by a second parameter indicating the field to be updated and how it is to be updated.

 

My questions are this, since I've never seen it written anywhere.

 

1) Does the first parameter have to be the one telling the connector which record to update?
Could I have it as the second parameter?  How does it know this parameter is the one indicating the record to update?
Does it realize it's the primary key and go from there?

 

2) Can there be more than two parameters where it will know to update these additional fields?
My belief is there can be, I've just never seen it.

 

I realize these are very general questions but I run into this and I've never seen anything stated.

 

If you could enlighten me I'd appreciate it.  Thanks.
