Papyrus: Door Script
There are two uses for Doors: they can define objects that open and close, but have few other behaviors; and objects that take you to another cell via a loading screen. In practice, most Doors are, well, doors!, but Door forms can also be used for display cases that open up (as in Skyrim), ladders (as in both games), cave entrances, and more.
Doors themselves aren't set up to take you to a specific location. The difference between a normal Door and a load Door is cosmetic: the load door has a solid black or white backing, so you can't see out of a level when you open it. When you want to make a door that takes you someplace, you do so by placing both ends in the editor, and then modifying both of those references to link them together.
