Chris, could you, please, be more specific with your complains? 
Templates are described in the manual in the sections you cited.

Notice that manual may be accessed from emacs
    M-x info RET org RET
    M-: (info "(org) The capture protocol")
or using [[info:org#The capture protocol]] links in org files or as a 
single long HTML page https://orgmode.org/org.html

You need something like
   (require 'org-protocol)
in your emacs init file to setup handlers for specific "file names". 
Org-protocol URIs are just relative paths to files from standpoint of 
emcasclient. Certainly this line should be executed when directory with 
org package is already known. The pitfall of such line is that it makes 
impossible to temporary try another org version using just
     emacs -L ~/src/org-mode/lisp test.org
it must be combined with -q or -Q.

What do you mean by "reverse-engineering"? %:link, %:description, %i are 
described in "The capture protocol" 
https://orgmode.org/manual/The-capture-protocol.html known to you. Upper 
"Protocols for External Access" section contains link to "Capture" 
section where a couple of examples (unrelated to org-protocol however) 
may be found. "Template elements" and (known to you) "Template 
expansion" sections have detailed reference of template constituents.

Notice that some information on this page is outdated.

:immediate-finish should be added when everything already works.
