What size helps build up chops better because i like using around medium sizes like .60 .73 .88 or does it really not matter?

It really does matter, different sizes and ends do matter a lot.

just depends what style you play and what you're comfortable with.
for example, i use the thick, pointy jazz III picks cuz i can tremolo pick really fast and thrash like crazy with em.

just whatever you like really.

I like heavy (1mm) ultex picks, but my friend likes lights. I hold my pick near the point, which makes it easier to pinch a harmonic, and it helps control the pick and keeps it from hanging up.

My friend holds his pick far from the point. A light pick won't hang up, becuase it bends a lot. If I were you, I'd find out where you hold the pick, and choose either light, heavy, or medium for in between.

Mediums are excellent, as well, because they bend just a little, and have a kind of snap on them, where my heavies have a smoother pick action.

It is easy to pick faster with a heavy gauge pick. I play 2mm ones. I think that's as thick as you can go really - without totally removing the whole point of it. They are great to play with but can be a bit uncomfortable to hold in certain situations. Pointy plecs are better too. More accurate and theres more definition in playing.

It DOES matter what plecs you use. Saying that it doesn't is a nooby mistake.
