Well, I'm not Patrick, and he surely knows more than I do, but here's a stab at it to get you started till you hear from him. I have not been exposed to the brand of shock you have, so I am assuming it adjusts the same as an Ohlins.

Preload Adjustment - Black on separate (remote mounted piece with hose going to it). Turning this clockwise tightens and couterclockwise loosens the tension on the big spring on the shock. Assuming you have the right spring for your weight - this is used to set sag on the rear of the bike. To my knowledge there is no high or low speed preload, only preload. This is not ride height.

Ride Height Adjustment - This is not a hydraulic adjustment - It is mechanical. The gold nut at the very bottom appears to be one of the two nuts - you loosen the jamb nut (usually the thinner of the two), and then turn the other nut which just screws the lower connection point in or out to make the shock longer or shorter. When you get it where you want it retighten the jamb nut. A good place to start is to set the length (upper bolt hole to lower bolt hole) same as your stock shock.

Compression Adjustment - High and Low speed compression adjustments - those are the two knobs in the upper right (as shown in your picture), one is gold and one is black. These restrict or control how quickly or slowly the shock is compressed (such as when you hit a bump).

Rebound Adjustment - This is the red located just below the bottom end of the spring. This restricts or controls how quickly or slowly the shock returns to it's extended position after it has been compressed. All damping adjustments are made by beginning with turning the adjusters fully clockwise and counting clicks OUT.

The 3-way refers to 3 damping adjustments:

Compression damping - high speed
Compression damping - low speed
Rebound damping
