Item 1.

The parts you salvaged are so called "double diodes" or two diodes in one package.
Usually the cathodes of each diode are connected togheter to form the center pin of TO-264 or TO-220 package so ANODE1 is on pin 1, Both CATHODES on pin2, and ANODE2 on pin3. You could (and should) verify this with a simple DVM with a diode test.
