We have a TOOLS forum already, wouldn't this suffice. There are different types of solder; Acid Core is used for copper pipe plumbing. Resin core is used for electrical PC boards and connections. Flux helps make a good solder joint. Solder isn't what it use to be either. The EPA in their infinite wisdom has decreed that LEAD be banned in all products in the US so, lead is no longer used in solder. When I use to build kits, upon completion, a wash of lighter fluid was needed to rinse the residue off. You can find lead rosin core solder at some suppliers mostly sold on ebay from Russia.
