I'm not sure why this didn't work. when I added names to the symbols, However, when I dragged the symbol instances around in the Project Navigator (despite being in the order I already wanted) the [page numbers] updated to the correct values. Then doing a Tools -> Update Other Objects... with Print Order, updated the title blocks to match. Note this required me closing sheets first before the update seemed to work.
Though, that only solves Question 1. Still curious about 2+3.
Thank you for the pointers. I did find that @path was the Property I needed to add to the schematic's title block to present which block was being displayed in the sheet.
For question 3, I did not figure out how to do that so I just added text to the sheet per instance of the block with a list of the sheets associated with it.

I'm not sure I understand question 3, but if you just want to know the total sheets so you would have Sheet n of m then you can use @SHEETTOTAL for the m value (total number) but there isn't an option for the range, so for example you couldn't have a sub-group for the range within the block, something like sheet 2 to 3 of 8. Nor can you put the range on the block, so for example in the Navigator you can display the range: Setup- Settings - Navigator - Blocks - Display Sheet Range but you can't add this to the block symbol.
Both of these would be suitable as Ideas on the Ideas pages Mentor Ideas for xDX Designer
There are a couple of Ideas already requesting extending the auto-evaluated properties (those beginning with @) for documentation purposes.
You might consider posting some new Ideas and voting for these two.

Adding it to the block symbol is what I was asking.
Thank you for your assistance!
