Spanish test coming up very soon; please help!

Are Ud./Uds. commands formed exactly the way the subjunctive is formed?

I saw on studyspanish.com that verbs that change orthographically in the subjunctive are these:

1.) -ger/-gir: g --> j
2.) -guir: gu --> g
3.) -uir: add "y" before "a"
4.) -uar: u --> ú
5.) -iar: i --> í
6.) -guar: u --> ü
7.) -car/-gar/-zar (this one I know changes in the Ud./Uds. commands as well as in the subjunctive.)


Do these rules (1-6) apply to Ud./Uds. commands as well?
