In Sephardic tradition Selichot is said from the second day of Elul through to Yom Kippur. I did not practice all this growing up and am trying to understand now. What tefilot make up Sephardic Selichot? Are the same tefilot said everyday? Does it change day by day? Please help.

The text is nearly the same every day. There are additions for the 10 days of repentance, and there is a small section which varies based on the day of the week.
There are also sections which are said in some congregations but not in others.
