"Alternative keys" does not mean "All alternative keys".

Then as per my first message, the help text is wrong, as it says:

"Alternative keys are shown in parentheses"

If it only shows one alternative key combination, it should mention that, along with the way to show all of them. Ideally not through manually unbinding every single combination and checking if they changed.

The help text lists just two shortcuts per function -- if there are more, they are not shown.  You can get to see the M-, and M-. shortcuts when you add

unbind M-< main
unbind M-> main

to your nanorc.

This is not a help forum.  If you want help, first try ^R ^G, and carefully read the entire text.  If it's still unclear, google.  If you then still are flabbergasted, send email to help-nano.

One can start nano as `nano 1 2`, this will open files 1 and 2, and one can switch through ALT+. between them.

The ALT+. key combo is missing from the F1 help screen.

Also, is there a way to open another file without killing the entire nano process? As in, start via `nano 1`, but also add file `2` from the already started nano?
