no worries newcan1. To answer your questions from above: a) a latent image within a silver halide emulsion is lost in re-halogenizing. b)only the oxidized metallic silver is converted back to a halide. c) the film will not retain the same speed nor sensitivity to color. (although I could be wrong on the last one in terms of color sensitivity.) I like to think of it as starting from scratch with the stock, essentially it is just recycling something that would've otherwise gone to waste. The key is to intentionally fog your paper/film under a lot of light and develop it well (to oxidise the Ag fully) and then bleach it. Then run your exposure/dev tests.
