Well isk how to explain it to good but..

H = Hammer On

Its when you hit a fret with strumming the string..

Like if i hit the A string and i had my finger on the 5th fret, with my next finget i would hit 6, or you can hit an open and then slam your finger onto the fret you need.

ummm it should be 2p0 not 2h0

the h means hammer on

a p means pull-off

a 2h0 would actually be a pull off "p" in tab, but the h= hammer on.

so. 5h7= 5th fret hammer onto 7th fret.

it would not be 2h0 it would be 2p0 or 0h2, and it means hammer on

That should probably be 2p0 meaing play the second note and pull your finger off so it's open.

If it's 0h2 than it means hammer on

Well, if they have 2h0 they're screwing it up a bit, it should be 2p0. The h stands for hammer-on, when you press the second note with your fretting hand without picking again. The p stands for pull-off, where you will pull your fretting finger off to the second note.
