ok when triplets are tabbed out theres 6 per measure when theres originally 8 per measure (there all eighth notes). how are triplets faster when you play less triplets per measure if that makes any sense...
#2
if they're all eighth notes, you're playing 12 triplet notes per measure because there will be 3 eighth note triplets per beat

say it like this, with emphasis on the capitals:

TRIP-uh-let-TRIP-uh-let-TRIP-uh-let-TRIP-uh-let

as regular eighth notes:

TRIP-let-TRIP-let-TRIP-let-TRIP-let

hopefully that helps

yeah that does help but why is it written 6 per measure? im confused lol.

That shouldn't happen unless A) the 6 notes are quarter notes, or B) the time signature is 2/4 and you're playing eighth notes.
#6
They're normally linked with a sign like this { but it'd be horizontal and the number 3 will be at its point.

Hope that helps and is not too confusing.

Edit*** Or it could just look like this
