Rule Clarifications Requested 1/2

If you don't mind I"m going to establish some more terminology before going further:
P = Past; R = pResent; F = Future; Rr = P resolution; Fr = F resolution (propagation of changes, annihilation, etc)
Trade = a sequence of two moves. Notation T##
Useful Unicode: ♔ ♚ ♕ ♛ ♖ ♜ ♗ ♝ ♘ ♞ ♙ ♟
Just to clarify this point, that is EACH PLAYER plays their turn on each board?
So assuming first(white), then WP1 has W and B both make a move; then play shifts to BP1 where B, then W, makes a move? (Assuming a fairly "normal" round).
Also, in the case of moves in P or F, if after white's play on BP1 white decides to move on P, is black also bound by rule to similarly effect a change on the past state? (I'd argue against this as it makes for a more interesting game.)
EDIT: Never mind; I read back over and see that change propagation was covered. I'll leave the below here because I bothered to type it and maybe it'll be useful to someone else (houe-rules, tweaks, ideas, etc)
Similarly, how are changes from past to present and present to future propagated? Is it immediate? Is there a delay? Is it instantaneous or timed.
T01 WR1- ♙E4 ♟F5
T02 BR1- ♟E4 ♙C5
T03 P- ♙D3 ♞C6
-Immediately propagate to the present
-Propagate only after ♞C6 (one trade)
-Propagate at the end of the round (I believe you may have mentioned something of this sort?)
-Propagate after the subsequent trade (canonically, BR2)
Additionally, I'd like the exact nature of the propagation clarified further. A propagation from the past might be:
-Only to the present (thus updating the state of the present without yet affecting the past)
-Present AND Future
-Present then future with delay (one move, trade, round, etc.)
