Digital keyboards/pianos have come a long way. That pic helps answer those questions you had - Briscoe is right on all counts.

But even if the piano was set ifor a certain song's patch, you could play anything on it, right? It would just sound a little different?

Yeah, I need to remember technology has progressed in the last 45 years.. Just a little bit. :)

We used to play with a box and a rock and we liked it.

And check out some of those patches (yeah I learned a new word and am going to pretend I know how to use it).  Two shots of happy? That just might need to go on my blue moon set list.

Yes, just think 'sound' or 'voicing' in place of 'patch.'
The fingers on the keys still control which notes are played, but the patch controls nuances of the sound (grand piano, or dog barks, or whatever).

So I suppose the dog Christmas carols aren't even performed by dogs. :(

Maybe for some parts/songs. Seen and heard myself when Edge slips up this tour. Last night during RBW being an example. Strumming guitar and keys alternately and quickly and oops a slip up.

You can hear imperfections in his playing. And it is really simple to play as others pointed out... there is absolutely no reason for him not to be playing it..

He clearly messed up/did something unexpected during EBW in NYC the other night.  Threw Bono off a tiny bit.  Really playing.

I hope he's really playing it too. I guess if he messes up then we'll know he is!

Probably the most I've heard him do so on this tour, very noticeable that night. You are correct.
