Yes, rank and position are two seperate things. Data is the second officer, third in command of the Enterprise, even though Crusher outranks him and he and Geordi share the same rank.

Yep. A Second officer has more authority over the ship than a doctor, engineer or counselor no matter what rank they may hold.
