Given that special operations usually conduct operations in small man teams, do (giving an example) 18D train 18B's, 18C's, or 18E's on medical operations or do 18B's giving firearms instructions to the rest of the 18 series?

Yes that is specifically part of their job and integral to the way the team is designed the way it is. Each team has a junior and a senior B, C, D and E. The junior is learning his craft and the senior is the subject matter expert for their skill and responsible for training the members of their team.
