AFAIK, you can only separate dimensions of the property "position" of the layer, you can't do that for the parameters of effects, even the "Position" parameter of the "Transform" effect

For the record, you can pretty easily get separated dimensions by applying three expression effects sliders to a layer and then tying the three position properties to those sliders.

Another way to solve this is to create a null object, and tie the position property of the effect to the position of the null object (via pick whip). You can then animate the null, with separate dimensions, full bezier handles and all, and get the same impact.

Create a null object. Pick whip the position properly of your object to the position of the null. Animate the null as desired.

I'm trying that, and I don't see how I can pick whip the "x" coordinate of my shape (not the layer - the shape witihin the layer) to an effect slider within a separate null object layer, and I'm having the same problem, which is that I can't separate out the "x" and "y" positions in order to pick whip each individual property to its own slider. If that were the case, I could just animate each without the need for the null object to begin with.

On the null object, select "separate dimensions" and there you go.
