I'm a bit confused with all those new types of ammo now available. Could somebody make a list in which he/she would point out what each type is for and how it works etc? It would be viewed with high regard. (Ex: Why should I use ammo for air targets and not ammo for armored targets. Ex 2 : What does APT bullets stand for? )

You should use ammo for air targets against other planes, bc it is designed to be used against them. Same goes for ammo against ground targets.
APT stands for Armor piercing Tracer
AP Armor piercing
HE High explosive
So for example if you use a fighter, you should load anti air ammo, bc your main targets will be other planes.
If you fly a IL-2 (ground attack) you should load anti armor ammo for tanks and pillboxes/ships.
Most of the time its situationally. You have only a fighter left, all bombers are down and to win you have to kill the last remaining ground targets. So load anti armor ammo and go for them.

AP is just slug that goes trough doing litle dmg but penetrates armor, HE makes bigger hole for soft target like air planes, Incendiary round have chance to ignite target and Tracer just gives pilot visual que where the rounds are going.
Quite self explained ?

Already asked, already answered.
Apparently the phrase "Most of US planes have been made much better, all should be better trimmed and made more historical accurate," actually translates as "the big patch that was supposed to fix the issues with US planes actually sodomizes them". RIP F86 Sabre :(
