I would like to know if it would make any difference in the "triplets" display, if their parameters were to be the same or different. In other words, do you display a graph of the same spike three times (4 dimensions: time space longitude altitude) or do they (triplets) represent 3 different pulses with the same intensity and with 3 different 4 dimensions?

A triplet has the time different for each of the three spikes. The direction is wherever the beam happens to be pointing (SETI does not have the money to actually point the beam, other users of Aricebo do that to some extent.) The timing of a triplet is such that if the beam is doing a normal sweep, the triplet could all be from the same source as it enters the beam, middle of the beam, and as it leaves the beam. Of course, if the triplet is faster than that, they could be placed nearer the middle...
