Please explain the pump universe

I have been playing paintball for a few months, and my first guns have been phantoms. Just by looking, I generally understand the logic of a "nelson" style pump gun because of my experience with phantoms. I love the phantoms, and I generally use them for open class play.
Can someone point me towards a general explanation of pump guns other than "nelson" style pumps?
I am completely confused by "autocockers" turned into pumps (that seems backwards).
I look at countless pictures on the BST threads, and I just appreciate the colors. How do you tell quality on the wide variety of autococker pump guns? Are these guns much harder to maintain than a phantom? Why would someone prefer these guns?
Why would someone say "CCM ruined pump play?"
