I would suggest a google search for your answers.

There is just to much that would be needed to explain.

Simply OBD is On-Board Diagnostics.

Started out as OBD or OBD0 and this means the car had somewhat a way to diagnose problems.

OBDI is simply a newer version with more diagnostic tools.

OBDII is the newest with even more.

Now we are starting with CAN but I don't want to confuse you too much.
