The acetylcholine (ACh) receptor causes an end plate potential to develop when activated by the movement of which two ions? And which way is each individual ion moving?

Actually, the acetylcholine receptor is a ligand based ion channel that increases the permeability to the sodium ion. The later increase in potassium conductivity is caused by the voltage-gated potassium ion channel, not the acetylcholine.
