I want to a component video cable, to hook unto a receiver using RCA to a monitor using BNC, the output would go from the receiver (component OUT), unto the monitor (component IN), with that in mind, the Source End [Upstream] should be RCA or BNC? End the Load End [Downstream] should be RCA or BNC?

It's going to be composite coming out of the receiver, with coaxial cable running to the monitor. So, you're going to use an adapter at either end -- one end being RCA and the other being BNC.

For example I have a Nordost digital interconnect subwoofer cable RCA to RCA and there was an arrow on the cable to indicate which side was to be hooked to the receiver and which side to be hooked to the subwoofer.

That doesn't matter. All the BNC and RCA are is a type of connector. What goes where makes no difference. You use whatever the piece of equipment you are connecting to requires.

Usually, markings such as those are to make it easier for consumers to hook everything up without having to worry too much about what goes where. Just connect according to the colors or numbers or arrows or whatever.
