Generally the answer to the first question is that you have to have "consideration" to convey real property, but the consideration can be things other than money - and if it is money, you do not have to say how much money (though you will have to say how much money on the tax affadavit). The line often says, "For ten dollars and other valuable consideration...", or "For Love and Affection..."

As for the number - that is for assessor purposes and auditor notice purposes, so that is the tax parcel number the county has assigned the parcel - you can look it up online or it is on your property tax statements.
