RUU = Rom Update Utility
S-OFF = Security Off = you can flash any RUU and have more risk of messing up your phone.
Still S-OFF is recommended because of the freedom to switch to RUU not meant for your device. And HTC will patch the ability to s-off so do it while you still can before taking an update OTA (over the air).
your in the right place just read then read some more you'll learn it quickly
