0 No.

Note that if Alter is also specified, the replacements are read before the corr. alterations (thus the order is a orbitals, a alterations, b orbitals, b alterations).
2 Yes. Read using the format described in Routine RdMO2. Here a range of MOs is indicated by two integers followed by an integer giving the number of basis functions.
