Need help with -poison res on switch mechanic

OK I don't know how this mechanic works.

I've heard of rabies druids using a deaths web on switch to give -res after the opponent is infected. I'm not sure how it works.

I'm building a MLD level 49 plague/poison jav amazon. If I poison them with a javelin, then switch to a 30/-30 weapon with a 15/-15 shield how does it work? Do they get this -45 res as long as they are poisoned? Do they need to be namelocked? Does it only work in a certain range? How do I apply this -45res to them by switching weapons after hitting them with a javelin?

Please explain this mechanic, and please answer only if you are certain.
