The names of the decoder-contexts in this list should be self-explanatory.

Are you looking for details on a specific decoder-context that you are trying to use?

Maybe this document will help explain those fields.

I was looking to create a pattern file based on certain words in the body of an email, but it doesn't look like I have the ability based on the descriptions in the PDF document.

You should try the Data Filtering feature, and write the regex to match the patterns/words.  Then apply the Data Filtering profile to smtp, pop3, etc to scan your email application.  The regex must have a 7-byte static string base.  Please review the Data Filtering requirement for more info.
