Hi Roshith

You do not need to change Interest *format*. Instead, append the
"non-hierarchical details" to the Interest name or include them as the
Interest Parameters.
Routing populates the FIB that is used by forwarding. FIB has longest
prefix match lookup. The last few name components do not affect routing and
