Once the appropriate sample has been determined, how frequently does the
sample choice need to be updated? Is a special data pattern needed to
update the sample choice, or random data will do, as long as there is a
certain minimum transistion density?

In the oversampling PLL, which technically isn't a pll, a local and
relativly stable clock is used to sample the incoming bitstream several
times during each bit period. Logic then determines on a bit by bit
basis which of the several samples is the one to be used. You don't
actually have to have a local clock that is many times the frequency of
the bit rate, just generate several phases of a clock at the bit rate.
