does it affect sound in any way? and where would an ibanez rg fall in since i made up my mind that that is going to be my future guitar.

hollow is hollow. semihollow is hollow except for a block running through the middle (classic example: Gibson ES335). Hollowbodies are much warmer sounding that solidbody guitars, semihollows have a similar sound but are less prone to feedback.

what if i want a really squeally kind of sound? would it matter if its hollow or not and is that determined by pickups?

Sound is determined by your amp more than anything else.

Rg's are solid body guitars. they have no hollow spaces, except for the control/pickup cavities.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
