Correct, the forward pair of heights is connected to "Height1".
Will I be able to add a second overhead Speaker Pair and use the Front Height 2 Connections to assign these ?
Yes, the rearward pair of heights is connected to "Height2". However, there are a few caveats you need to be aware of:
1. The 6200 has 9 amps built in, so to go to 11 channels (7.1.4) you need to add at least 2ch of external amplification
2. By default, the "Wide/Height2" speakers posts are assigned to the Front Wide speakers, so you have to change a setting to remap them to the Height2 speakers if you want to use the internal amps for all four heights. Then, as per #1
above, you have to change the "pre-out" setting to let the receiver know that the external amp is being used elsewhere.
Alternately, if you just get a small 2ch external amp for the Top Rears (Height2), you can leave the settings at default and you will feed the external amp from the Height2 pre-outs via RCA cables.
When I play a soundtrack with 7.1 Surround will this over-ride any setting I have for the Surround Back Speakers ?
I don't understand the question. But a 7.1 track will play -- at your choice -- either in "native" 7.1 with silent height speakers, or you can apply upmixing to engage the height speakers and mix up to 7.1.4 output.
