There are 21 PLLs. Learn those.
yea sooland that doesnt really make much sense to me. should i learn the oll's because i know how to get it all on the last layer its probably a little slower but a lot less memorizing.
Definitely learn PLL before OLL. You can average under 20 seconds without using full OLL. PLL will improve your times much more than OLL.
If you're going to be fast at Fridrich, you're going to have to memorize a lot of algorithms. You may not need full OLL, but you're still going to need to learn some. The sooner you start, the sooner you'll be done.
You could have been practicing a PLL in the time it took you to write a message saying there are too many algs. ;-)
I have all of the F2L algorithms down, but I can't find out how to learn Oll. It's not the algorithms, but I can't repeatadly get a case to work on an algorithm. For example, there's the one where a single dot in the middle, two bars on the side and a dot in the front and back. How can I get this case more than two or three times to kind of manipulate it so I can practice the Oll? It's a new case every time so I can't learn the algorithms. Same thing with PLL.
Also, I am unfamiliar with certain terms such as ZB, BLD, COLL, etc.
Some algs don't set up the same case. I.E do an A perm on a solved cube, and it will give you a case which is solved by the inverse.
All the terms you mentioned can be found in the speedsolving wiki here:
In the future please put questions in the beginner's section and welcome to the site.
Watch this. It shows you how to set up a case. Just to the alg backwards or do the alg until it repeats.

do M'U M'U M'U M'U2 M'U M'U M'U M'
simply negate the alg.
