    im not so clear on the different type of pots that are out there and if i could use the same type of pot for a volume and tone pot.

    Generic rule of thumb... 500K for humbuckers, 250K for single-coils. That's very generic, but I've followed it with everything I do and have found it to be okay. Yes, you can use the same type of pot for either volume or tone...
