You can create this modularly by :
1. parse the file and cut this into different chunks ( look for 'end' ) then
you have two chunks for param 1 & 2
2. once you have those chunks then process each chunk with your own
processing based on your parameters ( 1 or 2 )
3. then based on your individual param, create a process to populate your
dict
4. done

hint: "pydoc string"  ( I'm assuming that you already know about regex, if
not then use this : "pydoc re"  )
BTW: I've used this methods to parse  cisco/contivity configs
