well i plan on getting a new guitar with passives in it this summer, i dont know what yet but i want to experiment with different pups and see what id like
i came across trembuckers on seymourduncan.com and they look pretty good, but there seems to be a difference between humbuckers and trembuckers. im guessing it has something to do with a tremolo unit but idk.
so is there a difference?

No, just disregard all the posts in this thread that say that the tone is noticeably worse when it's dying...

From a site:

"Trembucker" is Seymour Duncan's brand name for their wider-spaced humbucking pickups, designed to fit the string spacing most commonly associated with Floyd Rose or vintage vibrato bridges (often called tremolos) with a string spacing of 2.070" or 52.6mm, measured center-of-high-string-to-center-of-low-string over the bridge pickup. This spacing issue usually applies to the bridge position pickup only, which is why Trembuckers are recommended for the bridge position. "

as he said, it has nothing to do with the sound, it's just spacing differences

You called the threadstarter a noob? As if you knew everything about guitars when you started. Pretty dumb comment, sounds like you just made a post to be able to use the term n00b and make yourself feel better.

Bea in mind that for Seymour Duncan specifically, trembuckers are also physically slimmer and longer than humbuckers, so most guitars require one or all of a new pickguard, new mounting ring or re-routing. Plus they're nearly impossible to install on any carved top guitar. I don't know why SD do this since every other brand in the world makes trembuckers to normal humbucker dimensions, but there you go.
