Documents necessary for citizenship from one parent?

Living in Miami, I'm curious about the documents necessary to get citizenship from my parent.

From my understanding I need
1. my birth certificate
2. my dad's birth certificate
3. my mom's birth certificate
4. my current passport

Is there any age requirement for the documents, such as,

"can't be older than 12 months"?
Do they all have to be apostatized?
Where does each document need apostilization?
For example, my mother is Argentinian, does her document need to be apostilized? My father is from Peru, what apostilization would they accept?
Will my local consulate accept only "long form" of birth certificates?

What if my dad is deceased, will they need his death certificate?

No age requirements
You get the apostille individually from each relevant country. For Peru and Argentina, you will need to book an appointment for it at their respective consulates in your country/area.
Death certificate should not be needed.

'Long form' I'm not sure what that means

• Original birth certificate of native Argentine father / mother. (Make sure it’s the “Acta de Nacimiento”. The “Certificado de Nacimiento” is not valid.)

Apparently there is a difference. And so I worry that if there's a specification even with Argentinian birth certificates then I worry they will have specifications for other nationality's birth certificates.

The difference is that 'Certificado' is a temporary document, only given to parents at the moment of birth.

'Acta', also called 'partida', is the actual registry in the governent's records.

I don't think it's possible to even get a copy of the 'certificado' so don't worry about that. Any certificate that you are able to order a copy of will be equivalent to an 'acta'.

No. The acta is the public book. You get a copy of that.

No. Only his birth certificates needs to be apostilled.
From your AR parent you need whatever you have, even a simple DNI number is good enough because he ir she is registered at the Census.

I saw this so much, but I dont know what they mean.

In Argentna when one is born they take out BIG BIG book and write it down there, like in all other countries. But whats different that Argentina doesn`t give additional nice looking document, nothing, it is not a certificate, not an acta, it is just god blessed FOTOCOPIA of this BIG BIG book, then somebody puts a signature on it, he did nice fotocopia)

That is the acta precisely.
Do not take much attention at whatever the F.O. post because they are clueless.
Something important is, if they deny to process it, you can always apply for opción de nationality at the Federal Courts in Argentina using a lawyer with poder of attorney.
