Can anyone explain to me what exactly it is that pots do? where they are? whats the difference between a 500K and 250K?

pots are variable resistors. there used to control parameters normally. like you volume pot, tone pots, etc.
and the difference between 500K and 250k is about 250k. but seriously, the number refers to the Ohms. diferent guitars, pedals, amps, require a different resistance.

Pots are variable resistors. If it's 500k, when it's all the way up, it's gonna let more treble through than a 250k. A 1meg pot will let even more treble through. Then there are different tapers. That link explains everything much, much better than I can.

Pots have nothing to to with treble, they are vatiable resistors. If you're referring to your guitar's tone control, the reason for the treble rolloff is that the pot is part of a simple filter circuit with a capacitor.

The resistance of the pot affects the circuit though.
