Raindogt got most of them for you; but I'll chime in too...

what does CDC mean?

CDC is Cul de Canard, it is a feather located very close to the oil gland ducks preen their feathers with, and as Tony mentioned the structure of the feather traps air.

what is a Trico hatch and what is used to imitate it?

A Trico is a species of Mayfly, a very small Mayfly; think sizes below 20.

what does ISO mean?

Iso, to me is a shortening of the word Isonychia; another species of Mayfly.

whats the difference between a nymph and a midge...the size?

A Midge is a winged insect, I believe it is one of the species of 'true flies", which have only two wings. A nymph is a stage in a Mayflies life cycle, nymph, dun, spinner is the cycle for mayflies.

is a parachute an emerger?.....is and emerger a nymph?
A parachute is simply a style of fly, depending on how it is tyed it could be used as an emerger.
