Measure 2 signals on TIM2 CC1, CC2

On this link there's an example piece of code:

Hoping someone could clarify a few things.
In the example posted above, it uses TIM2 over 4 channels to measure 4 signals. It is configured to use PD3,PD4,PD6,PD7.
I do not see in the documentation where those pins can be used as an alternate function on TIM2. Can you explain that please?

Secondly, if I wanted to measure at least 2 frequencies as configured in this example, do they need to be the same but differ only in phase? Can they be different frequencies - but within the range of the configuration?

I need to measure 2 different signals. For example, I'm using PA.5 on TIM2. When I run the code it works fine and measures the signal's frequency.
Following the above example, I've tried adding PA.6 in the same way. The interrupt handler is configured for both TIM_IT_CC1, and TIM_IT_CC2. But, with a signal applied to PA.6, there is nothing happening. Code is below. Can someone explain why it does not work?
