Merging Branch to Trunk

Iíve yet to see a clear explanation for this so bear with me as itís
obviously a hot topic.

Paraphrasing the subversion manaual section "Merging a Whole Branch to
Another", the process of merging changes from branch to trunk is by way of:

$ cd <trunk wc>
$ svn update
$ svn merge <revision range> <branch-url>

Fair enough.

First question: Does this still work if during branch development, certain
changes (but not all) were ported to branch from trunk ?

OK I'll continue. Let's say I finish development and want to port my branch
back to the trunk. Tha manual says to first port all latest changes from
trunk to branch and then:

$ cd <trunk wc>
$ svn update
$ svn merge <trunk url@HEAD> <branch url@HEAD>

Second question: Would this not produce the same result as the top example ?
And if not why not ?

Thanks in advance.
