This answer to this question should be obvious, but no one seems to address
it explcitly:

How do I pass arguments to a function call? i.e. if I do "M-x some-function"
and "some-function" takes optional arguments, how do I pass those arguments
to the function call?

If the function's interactive form supports it, it will be documented (e.g.
"with a prefix arg, prompt and read optional arg FOO from the minibuffer").

If the function's interactive form does not support it, call the function
non-interactively with M-: instead of M-x:

M-: (some-function ARG-1 ... ARG-N) RET
