It's "long" time I did not use it, actually, so I'm not up to date with how I managed it in details. I used a Python prog to read location data (from GPS or any GPS emulator) and this prog creates a new KML file every second in its loop. Google Earth reads that KML file to update the icon location.
I add the KML files I used here for you to study (read them with some Notepad. You may find plenty of info about GE on Google. I also add the python script I used. Hope this helps.TOPdownUAV_gps.kml
Following are the settings to set up the link files in GE (screenshots from french version, sorry)

Not as I know. Update setting at 1 sec is Google Earth maximum. You may ask them if they eventually plan to increase that in the future.

Nick, according to the KML reference page the refresh interval is in seconds. I've never tried a rate <1.
