I had a version of this module and I recall there was one additional cable for another pad.  i suppose this pad could be a kick, or cymbal.
 
I don't remember the kick switch, but I'd guess that it allows the kick to trigger from a switch or a pad.  With a pad you'll get velocity....  and could potentially have a double kick if the pad was large enough to accomdate two beaters.
 
As for surge, yes you can, but only single zone. 
 
Hope that helps.  Although, I could be wrong, as the DM6 I had was sightly different.
