[Chameleon] how to get %variable% passed on

Very newbie question?
I am just switching from basic HTML+MapServer to Chameleon. I simply
modified one of the samples, and love the results so far. I have,
though, a couple of things I miss:
1. Queries. I had nice results, formated, with only the info I wanted.
Now I get a dbf-dump for the shapefile. I read the html template for
queries, used by the MapServer CGI, is ignored by Chameleon. The
dbf-dump table will not do. How do I go about changing this?
2. I used to send a variable, say my_genus, from <select> input in the
form, so it got replaced in the template, for filter, like
FILTER ('[genus]' eq '%my_genus')
so the user could either show only a selection of the items. How do I
reproduce this with Chameleon?
PS: anybody knows whether there is anything wrong with DMSolutions mail?
I requested info on training and support, got no answer.
