Hello Sherlock, hope is all well. Let me see if I can help you a bit. Dymanic keys means they are set in a context and they are programable by Sysadmin. The dyn keys are the ones in your IP phone just bellow or at the side of the LCD. As for the lines, I am not sure but I believe you could attach 2 or more (8 in 7970G) different extensions to the phone.

The cards you mentioned look like respectivatelly, a 4 port FXO one and a E1 controller (which might have one o more E1 ports).

Someone can confirm that please?
