Is this sentence correct? (Yes, it's a list now, just for convenience. It will be normal sentence).

E.g., you can use [discrete] for section titles only, NOTE for plain paragraphs or ==== blocks only, [quote] and [verse] for ____ blocks only.

Here is the confusing part:

NOTE for plain paragraphs or ==== blocks only.

It's assumed that NOTE couldn't be used for anything except plain paragraphs and ==== blocks.

  • Should I use "or" or "and"?
  • Should I use "only"?

NOTE for plain paragraphs or ==== blocks only.

You don't need "only" here. It seems really fine without it.

E.g., you can use [discrete] for section titles only, NOTE for plain paragraphs or ==== blocks only, [quote] and [verse] for ____ blocks only.

"Only" seems very redundant in your paragraph. I suggest you omit it and rewrite your paragraph like this:

For example, you can use [discrete] for section titles, NOTE for plain paragraphs or ==== blocks, and [quote] and [verse] for ____ blocks only.

"Only" in the last sentence is suitable since the previous one has two choices while this one has only one choice which happened to be mentioned before.
