if you receive gonorrhea from your partner does this mean you will receive everything they might have (hep, HIV and so on)

No, it doesn't-- some STDs are inherently more contagious and therefore easier to acquire than others. But that also means that it could happen that you might acquire more than just gonorrhea-- that's why the AIDS epidemic keeps going.
