    Good Day to you all, please i'm looking for a capacitor that has both input and output differently. what i mean, is a capacitor that can be charge through an input wire and discharge through a different output wire. thanks

    I think you need a switch.

    ¿?
    Perhaps this :

    Charge--------------|>|-------------(C+)------------|>|-------------Discharge
    GND----------------------------------(C-)------------------------------GND

    That's about as close as you're going to get.

    No. It's either a low inductance feed trough for one of the capacitor legs, or it's two capacitors in one case.

    Assuming a common connection between the charging and discharging elements...

    Just connect two wires to one terminal. Charge the cap thru one wire, discharge thru the other.

    If there is no common element then you will need 4 wires.
