'parts' of the value in the secret key file are used for different purposes.  so no you arent' doing 2048 bit encryption by virtue of having a 2048 bit file.
I can't recall the details, but there is an ancient post that explained.  in that post, the original poster was suprised that damaging part of the file didn't seem to break the encryption, but that was just because he was damaging a part that wasn't being used for the encryption he was doing in his scenario.

The size of secret key is always 2048 bits or I can change?
This mean what the data that I'm sending is cryptographed in 2048 bits?
