You have done observership, you did not do residency or fellowship. So you don't need to check that.

Where did you read this? I don't know about the Print Letter Request Form in ERAS.
As for assignments, it's assigning your LoRs to the programs that you will apply for.

The ECFMG still says that you have to send your supporting documents to ECFMG.

The only new thing this year is the Letter Request Form found in ERAS website, this is just a replacement of what previously called coversheet.

Have a look here
