Very good questions!

does signing up for more than one character in specific request mean that those characters are supposed to appear in a fan work together
No. It's 'or' matching rather than 'and' matching. You are only guaranteed to match on one character (though in reality you'll probably match on several) and your writer/artist only has to include one of your requested characters (though they must also use the category you requested and they offered).

are the request groupings random and all relationship stuff (gen or romantic/sexual) go into the optional details or letter
Yes, please. I'll be hand-matching, so I'll be paying attention to optional details/letters.

Or is the sign-up form more geared toward differentiating between relationship categories?
Yes. If you want gen only for some characters in a particular 'fandom', then add those characters all together in one request and tick only 'gen'. Same for various kinds of ships.

For your first example, you can just put everyone together, and specify in optional details/letter.

For polyfic, you can, again, just put everyone together and specify in optional details. I can't guarantee that you'll necessarily get someone who wants to write the exact same configuration, but you will at least get someone who's okay to write polyfic with those characters.

For your f/f example, I think putting it under f/f and specifying in optional details that infidelity is something you don't want, and exactly as you word it, please have the husband be okay with the relationship. (It's kind of technically multi by the letter of things, but I think multi kind of implies everyone's involved, and for this scenario that really isn't the case, so f/f's fine.)

You're fine to request het for a character whose wife isn't in the tagset, just specify in optional details. :)

Hope this helps, if you think of anything else, please let me know!
