This will all be documented, in the documentation for the product.

Get hold of the documentation. You are presumably not on your own trying to use CA-7? How about arranging to talk to someone who already uses it at your site?

Most of what you are asking is self-explanatory, isn't it?

The CA-7 text editor is ... guess what ... a text editor for jobs that are in the CA-7 queue! Was that so hard to guess?

The CA-7 text editor is NOT anything like the TSO ISPF editor and there's very little overlap between the two editors as far as command syntax and so forth. SR (Save / Replace) replaces the original queue JCL with the changed JCL in the editor. Once this is done, using the CA-7 function to restart the job will use the modified JCL not the original JCL. And note that the queue JCL is changed, not the JCL stored in the JCL library, so the next time the job enters CA-7 it will have the old, unedited JCL not the changed JCL.
