What are the difference and what are their significance? I know they are important, I just don't know why.

This isn't the "official" answer, but the way I was able to best understand it as explained was the Parent(s) is / are the Name(s) who were involved with creating our ba.  However, a Beloved(s) are those who are like the uncles, aunts, or close family friends who are willing to help you.

With that said, the Parent always comes first when it comes to things like advising.  So if your Parent tells you one thing and the Beloved says another, the Parent has majority.

I hope to elaborate on it soon, but I have to get off the computer for a few.

Another way of putting it is that your Parents created your ba, and your beloveds influence your Ka, or this life. :)

Hethertiret is pretty spot on. The other difference being our Parent/s are always our Parent/s. Our Beloveds change with each Ka incarnation. The Ba is unchanging. Often traits of our Beloveds are more obvious than those of our Parent/s.

Hope this helps somewhat.

I've heard also that some people may 'lose' and 'gain' Beloveds throughout this life. It seems to be a very big decision, though.

I haven't heard of anyone losing a beloved, but yes, They can be gained.

Piping up as one who gained a Beloved -

Sometimes a Name who was not in your original RPD will lay a claim to you, such was the case with Ma'ahes shortly after my first Wep Ronpet.  I began getting a male lion EVERYWHERE....and after almost 8 months of hemming and hawing I finally asked Hemet for a divination for clarification, and She confirmed I gained a Lion.

To my recollection (and my memory may be off here) but usually  it's a "if you want" situation.  ie the Name will lay a claim to you as Beloved .... if you want.  You have that option to say no... but I don't think anyone ever has.
Sometimes it's a "well now I'm in your life so deal with it" situation.. but I do believe every time I've heard of someone who's gained a Beloved, it was an "if you want" situation. Know what I mean?

But I feel I need to stress that it is a distinct change...  and like most things not to be taken lightly.  It does change your life, as your Beloveds influence your life.

There are also situations where a Belove was there all along, but was not revealed with the initial RPD. Such was the case with Aset and me.

I've seen quite a few that were not "if you want" situations (though of course I'm not remembering specific examples other than myself). Yinepu and Serqet didn't give me a choice, but Khonsu and Bast did.

Yeah, Heru-wer didn't give me a choice either.

At my later divination  to determine if I had gained Seshat, it came back "Seshat-Nit-Nebhet and you have no say in the matter".  I'm quite happy with that. :)

If you are very attracted to and feel close to several Names, is is possible that all these Names are either Parent or Beloved?

It's possible. Sometimes it's just projecting however. :)

And you can be close to a Name Who isn't in your line-up.
