The wound strings are the larger strings. E-D on an electric and E-G on an acoustic. They're, you know - wound. The unwound strings are the higher strings. They aren't wound.

Different metals give different sounds. Steel is good for highs, Nickel is good for bassier tones. There are also various alloys, but I don't know much about them.

Also, different metals have different magnetic properties (for use in electric guitars).

IE stainless steel strings give a very bright, clear tone because it is highly magnetic. And so on.
