Can anyone help me understand what different pedals and effects do? For example, what is compression? Or an envelope filter? Or a phaser?

I am grateful for any explanations, links or whatever.

Thanks.

Compression reduces the dynamic range - it smooths out the peaks in your signal. This can make the loud bits quieter and the quieter bits louder.

An envelope filter is like a wah pedal that is controlled by how loud the signal out of the bass is rather than by moving your foot.

A phaser mixes the signal with a very slightly delayed version of itself, which makes a distinctive sound.

Try searching wikipedia for more information on all of these, or on the lessons on the main site.
