Default Root Lingo?

I am new to the Android world. I recently dumped my 3Gs for the AT&T GS2. I had my iPhone jailbroken and I understand rooting is somewhat similar. However I do not understand any of this root lingo and it scares me to death to attempt to root the phone before I know exactly what it is I can do with it being rooted.

So my question is what is this root lingo?

What is a ROM exactly? What does it stand for? What does it do? Why use them?

What is CMW? What does it mean, and what is it?

What is CM7? etc...

These things are things I constantly see, but have no clue what they are and the research I have done has not been clear to me.

I mean I am pretty technology savy, but I am not catching on to this whole rooting concept and lingo yet.

Also last thing is in your opinion is it worth rooting and how complicated is the process to root the GS2?

Thanks
