    Brand and Princess~ You did NOT scare me off...lol! Thanks for sharing, now let me see if I can answere some of the questions. Yes I have task Killer, No I have not ( to my knowledge) transferred my apps to my SD because I do not know how, but I will Google how to do so. Lastly ROM, I am not sure I even know what the he11 that is. So again I will Google ROM.
    I am willing to try anything!

    A ROM is basically the system file. You are on the stock Motorola Froyo ROM. Developers make aftermarket ROMs to change things such as different themes, system changes, customization etc. And a well designed ROM is better than the Motorola one. For example, Apex is faster, smoother and more stable than MotoBLUR. I also get over 12 hours per charge with heavy use. When I was stock, I had to charge my phone atleast twice a day.

    Taskillers are not necessary and actually can do more harm than good. I haven't needed to use one, except for poorly designed apps. My phone runs nicely without them.

    Apps2SD is nice because then you don't lose them and you free up system space. Some apps will not work on your SD card and require you to have them on the internal memory. If you decide to mod your phone or do data wipes or anything, I would suggest rooting your phone and installing Titanium Backup. You can create backups of your apps and reinstall them later. Its fast and easy.

    You are speaking a language I am clearly not 100% understanding. I have a backup assistant, but what I hear you saying is that I need a better backup than the standard issue. Also that you suggest App2sd to easily transfer the appa that will run on my SD to my SD? As far as the ROM, if I understand you correctly then an different style ROM may better suit my needs. With this being said I have no clue where to find said ROM, but again I can look.
    Yikes I am feeling a bit overwhelmed with all this new information!

    apps2sd is the name of the app..just search it in your market.
    backup assistant is a different kind of backup(contacs)and is acually a redundancy because google backs them up. titanium is for backing up all your data and apps and needs to be rooted..
    and before you start pulling your hair out looking for a rom you shoul prolly look into rooting first and be familiar w/what goes w/it..ie: it voids your warranty and theres the possibiliy it could brick it but opens up so many possibiltys its overwhelming.
    check out some threads on rooting here to get a better understanding of whats going on w/your phone.
    look into the z4 app I think it works on the droid 2 for rooting.
