Oh man, hp_lovecraft can explain the differences so well..
I can tell you what a poppet is. A ram/striker hits a valve pin that is attached to a seal that is compressed against the face of a valve to open it and allow air to pass through. I'm kinda shaky on the spool valve, so I won't really try.
The only other valve type that's significant to paintball is the sprinkler, most commonly used in MQ'd cockers. I'm also shaky on that one. Try googling each of them, or even wikipediaing them..I think I made that word up.
