when it says just csus that means its a suspended 4th

it's constructed 1-4-5
(i think)

So it'd be C,F,and G. I'm not too sure though
Signature? What's a signature?

There are a million in depth chord sites out there. And one of them will tell you multiple ways to finger this chord.

The term 'sus' is short for suspended. Suspended chords have the third replaced with either the 2nd or the fourth. 'Sus' with no further qualification usually refers to a sus4 chord although I have heard some people say that it implies a 7sus4 chord.
So, heres (one way to play) both:

--3-------------3--
--6-------------6--
--5-------------3--
--5-------------5--
--3-------------3--
--x-------------x--
Csus4      C7sus4

Nah, thats a Cmaj11. If a chord has a third, whether it be major or minor, it negates the suspension. A chord which has intervals 1-4-5 is a sus4 chord. A chord with intervals 1-3-4-5 is an add4 chord.
