when they do not create the sounds of a regular whammy bar. Like i have a dodgy squier strat and it has what i assume to be a tremolo bar but it does not do anything. Maybe its for looks im not sure, im just wondering why?? Or am i missing something here lol

A whammy bar is another name for a tremelo bar.

they = same thing.

he prolly doesnt know how to use it hes prolly just turning it like some people that never used them before do, you have to push it into the guitar or pull up on it so it changes the string tension, not turn it in circles

Probably not pressing down on it enough. Or maybe try pressing down when its parallel to the strings, and the end of the bar is pointing towards the headstock?

do you need some sort of pedal. i was told by a friend of mine that you need one to opearte it. im a rookie when it comes to a tremolo bar so i was just wondering how you go about using it.

^ he could have been thinking of the whammy pedals

Are you talking about the fixed briges that look like a tremolo like on squire bullets.

when i first started with my electric, i had a squire, and i thougth that you rased the notes with it, even though its not a floating trem, then i soon found out that you push down on the other side of the trem and the notes bend down...looking back on it, i musta been retarded.

Maybe he's trying to use it like a Floyd Rose. That type of vintage style trem isn't made to perform crazy Floyd divebombs.
