Workflow Substitution


I am a few doubts over the workflow substitutions which I hope they could be cleared off by any of you, wf experts:

1) Workflow substitutes (active or passive), the substitute profiles could be used to limit the work items that the substitutes are able to view. Is my understanding correct?

2) When assigning substitutes, authorization is not passed over, which means the approver assigning the substitutes and admin has to assign the authorization, in order to complete the substitution process?

3) For example, in PR workflow, an approver has assigned a substitute. Does the substitute approve the purchase requisitions using his or her own release code or the approver's release code instead?

If using the approver's release code, is there any way of making it become the substitute's release code through the substitution process, for better tracking?

Thank you so much for your advices, suggestions, opinions and help.
