    Rooted means its been hacked. Mms is multimedia message
    SMS is your basic text message.

    rooted phone means adding custom firmware to the phone. Basically it allows gives you God access to the phone, more freedom to install things etc (invalidates warranty)

    mms is a multimedia text message

    sms is a normal text message

    We cant really list every one, but ask and you shall be told!
