Dislocated or Broken? You decide.

How much medical knowledge does one need to tell the difference between a dislocated arm and a broken shoulder? Would, say, the top general of an army be able to figure out if his was broken or dislocated?

And, assuming the injured person had regeneration abilities, how long might it (reasonably) take to recover from crushed legs, a broken/dislocated shoulder/arm, broken ribs, and internal bleeding, so that the person could walk?

Sorry if this is asking too much or straying into the realm of the hypothetical.

EDIT: Also, what would a broken shoulder look and feel like? (I found a past post about dislocated arms, so I don't really have to worry about that one.)
