Not talking about chords in drop tunings. Meaning drop 1, drop 2 or drop 3 chords.

Anyone actually know what they are and wouldn't mind explaining to me?

not too sure but i think drop chords are different voicings of chords like drop 2 on a 1-3-5-7 would become 3-1-5-7
drop three would be 5-1-3-7

not too sure though...need to do some fact checking

there are drop 2s, drop 3s and drop 2+4
drop 2 takes the second highest voice and drops it an octave
drop 3 takes the third highest voice and drops it an octave
and drop 2+4 take the second highest voices, and the lowest voice and lowers them an octave
In general these work best with chords that have 4 voices

Yes exactly, it's a fairly standard Jazz form for guitarists.

But this is a drop Voicing for example.

3 x 3 4 - Its Root, b7 and 3rd -

Someone asked about this sort of thing a while back. From post 8 onwards I provided some examples of how to voice chords in this manner.
