I’ve made drawings to my patent application, presenting exemplary embodiment of a distributed network of nodes. I have few questions:
There are rules for drawings but none require a particular shape to depict a representation of part of a system. While block are often named there is no requirement to do so. In fact for international purposes it is recommended not to becasue drawings do not get translated, unlike text.
And no one will get around a good claim by calling a subsystem "Sam" instead of "Bob.

Must the system diagrams, illustrating nodes in distributed network, be presented as hollow, rectangular shapes? I made them as hollow, elliptic shapes, is it important? - In utility patent application shape do not matter only function matters, if a function can be achieved in a particular shape then use that shape otherwise in the description you can write shape can by in any form like hallo or rectangle etc.
For your question 2 - you should not include a description in drawings according to USPTO rules, you can refer to USPTO rules /requirements on patent drawings.
For your question 3 - the names of nodes will not limit your protection.
