Help Not sure how does the match work?

I am done with step 1 ..and am quite confused about ERAS and NRMP
one has to apply both?? how does these two are different?

I am targeting the 2012 match..

1. So do I have to apply ERAS on Sept 1st? and what is the usual deadline?
2. Can I apply without step 2 CK result?
3. Can I update my information as I get the CK exams results and LoRs?

I am afraid I need at least until October to do the will get my result in November
...So will I miss the match??

Match is offered only once in year?? any information and suggestion will be very appreciated
