Before you can take advantage of what OpenSER has to offer, you should 
become familiar with the the various RFC's associated with SIP 

AVP stands for Attribute - Value Pair.  Basically, it maps an attribute 
for example, "NPA" to a value such as "212".  The AVP's do have the 
ability to use databases to store and retrieve values, however, this is 
not a requirement.  The configuration file can set, test and/or access 
an AVP without any database access.  In real life situations, you will 
most probably want to use a database to store and retrieve AVP's.

RPID is defined here:

Considering it looks like it was written by the people who developed OpenSER, there's a lot of implied/assumed knowledge there, and the scripting language is very high level, it's bloody difficult to work out what the documentation means.
