Several questions on using Custom Press

1. On the admin menu for a custom post type (surfers) I am getting two Tag selections.

Add new surfer

2. Is there better documentation for Custom Press. I have read what is available and watched the video. Sorry but not as thorough as what I need.
The settings for custom fields and taxonomies, are not well explained and it becomes a strictly trial and error process

3. How is a media focused field created that would allow, gallery, slider, video?

Thanks in advance.

    In Custom Press there is the ability to declare taxonomies, such as categories and tags that appear in the admin menu associated with the custom posts. They appear independent of post category and tags, as they do not inherit existing categories and any categories added to the custom posts are not inherited into standard post categories.

    I have propagated the standard post categories and tags through the sites using the New Blog Templates plug-in.

    Are these custom post taxonomies a secondary set of categories and tags that are specific to the sites that are using the custom posts and taxonomies?

    Are they redundant to what was propagated? Do they have all of the same functionality?
