lighting - oracle / halo / HID - teach me

ok, looking at upgrading my lighting.I'm mechanically inclined, but all this new lighting stuff is beyond me. what are oracle / halo's ? what are HID's? Which is better and why? what are my other options?

TIA

I have a write up I just did a few dad ago about a retrofit I did with hids with photos of before and after to show you the output difference

In my experience the halos are just decorations they offer little other than cool looks hids done the proper way have better light cutoff and are not blinding to passing motorists

H1 and H4 and types of bulbs the oracle lights still use the h4 bulbs inside and have an led halo around the outside that would work like parking lights the hid bulbs(h1) come in different intensity which is different colors I have ran the oracles in another car and it is more of a scattered light pattern rather than focused (like the hid)I believe it has something to do with the projectors but the oracles seemed like a downgrade from my stock lights(on an 03 vw)
