Container: A structure without content that holds other layout elements such as blocks and containers.

referenceBlock and referenceContainer: Updates in <referenceBlock> and <referenceContainer> are applied to the corresponding <block> or <container>.

For example, if you make a reference by <referenceBlock name="right">, you are targeting the block <block name="right">.

To pass parameters to a block use the <argument></argument> instruction.
