PI EMDVB Interface Configuration Examples and Questions

I am trying to understand what is and isn't possible when configuring my PI EMDVB interface but I'm struggling to understand even the basics from just reading the user guide. So I have some questions.

1. Does anyone on here have any useful resources that might do a full walk-through of configuring a PIEMDVB interface?

2. Tag templates: the user guide says that this creates and updates tags based on the data source. What if the tags I am interested in are already created? If I make a template to point to the already-created tag will it just pull the value into the EF?

3. Elements: Let's say my operation is run on a Unit of a Skid but within the skid there are two tanks. How do I tell the interface to look at all three elements to gather the data? What if the source data doesn't match what elements I have? Will it create new elements?

4. Property templates: Are property templates really attribute templates?

I'm not sure if my questions even make sense but I would really appreciate any guidance.
