I'm not too familiar with awk, I can't figure out what that one is up to without test data.

cut is just splitting and can be replaced with -split. Awk may be doing something similar so you can always split again:
$typeset_CKID = ($args[0] -split '\.')[1]
$typeset_SID = ($args[0] -split '\.')[0] -split '_'

I assume the awk line is to just get the last part of something like
generated from

_CKID would then be "four", and _SID should be "three".

Chris is almost there then.
$_CKID = ($args[0] -split '\.')[1]
$_SID = (($args[0] -split '\.')[0] -split '_')[-1]
