I'm writing a manual / reference document and I want to include a cross-reference that refers the reader from one part of the document to another. Example: "For more information, see the procedures found in Section 9.1.2." If another 1Body1.1.1+ paragraph is added at a later date, then the reference number changes and becomes obsolete unless I manually search the document and update it accordingly.  Is there a way to generate a 'smart' reference that is always tied to that content and changes as the reference paragraph number changes?

Yes. You will need to customize the X-ref format to reference the paragraph number:
