Welcome to the group, kari.mudie.
Yes, Gnostic terminology (and cosmology, etc.) can be difficult to decipher, as you and Richard note. In our links sections you can find a lexicon of common Gnostic terms (PMCV is currently working on an update of that) in addition to some introductory articles, which you might find helpful.
Better than one thousand verses
Where no profit wings the word,
Is one solitary stanza
Bringing peace of mind when heard.
