">Tools >Options >LivreOffice >Advanced >Open Expert Configuration

All:

Other than:
* Reading the source code, and translating that into English;
* Playing with the options, selecting randomly selecting values, and
hoping I can pickup the effects;

is there anything that describes:
# the configuration options;
# what that option does;
# acceptable values for the option;
# the effect of each acceptable value;

For each item listed at ">Tools >Options >LibreOffice >Advanced >Open
Expert Configuration"

If so, what documentation, etc am I looking for, and where can it be found?

Nope, why it takes an expert   ;-)

You pretty much must as you said try:

Oh, and take notes, or you'll do it all again.  The majority of user
adjustable Expert Configuration stanzas are in *common.xcs* found here:

https://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/officecfg/registry/schema/org/openoffice/Office

I find that sorting the Expert Configuration dialog by the Preference Name
field makes it easier to locate the corresponding source.  For some of the
more obscure  *value* settings (without comments in the .xcs) you have to
dig into the corresponding source.

As to the Help, this is all that has been done thus far for using the Expert
Configuration dialog:
https://help.libreoffice.org/Common/Expert_Configuration
<https://help.libreoffice.org/Common/Expert_Configuration>  

Or in the actual Help source, and a couple of the Help articles that explain
setting a value:
https://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/help/source/text/shared/optionen/expertconfig.xhp

Documentation team is always happy for assistance, especially on a large
project like capturing all these would be.

Super-expert, would be a more accurate term.

I was hoping that it was simply a case of my Google-Fu not being up to
snuff.

As I explore those options, I'll blog about it.
Probably easiest to start at ">Tools >Options >LibreOffice >User Data
>Name" and end at ">Tools >Options >Internet >MediaWiki >Web Publisher",
including notes for extensions that add their configuration menu to
">Tools >Options". (IIRC that was R4OOo.)
