Some inline skaters may do all three where others stick to a particular style that they prefer. Vert skating or "vertical skating" usually refers to skating done in a halfpipe. Many skaters have their own skate parks with half pipes and other constructions to help them vert skate.
You will want a softer wheel if you are using it outside. It absorbs the cracks, rocks, bumps,etc. But a harder wheel will go a lot faster and will last longer also. Hardness is measured on a durometer, with 0 being the softest and 100 being the hardest. Most of the inline skates come with a hardness of 78A to 82A. They can be used inside or outside. I would go with a 78A if you are going to use it mostly for outside skating. A beginning skater could go to a 70A and it would be ok. If you are skating inside, I would look for a 85A or higher wheel. But if you are new to skating, it is OK to stay with the 78A to 82A.
It is therefore necessary that you use the correct inline skate before you embark on tricks and other disciplines of inline.
If you want inline skating and you are yet starting, aside from the need to have heel stop or toe stop, you also need to use safety gears like helmet, wrist guard, and knee and elbow pads. Many skaters likewise use loose jeans made of hard materials to help them move easier while the hard material will protect them during crash.
Heel stop may cause a skater to trip in cases of speed or slalom skating. However, if you are yet a beginner you will need either a heel stop or toe stop. You surely do not want to crash to mirrored walls or to street post while inline skating.
