Terminologies in funds

Hi, I am new to trading. I just want to know the different terminologies in adding funds like Free cash, Payin, Realized Profit, Unrealized profit, Margin used etc…

Adding funds = One has to transfer money from savings to trading account.
Free cash = Money that is remaining after deducting expenses and margin money with the brokerage firm.
Pay-in = The amount which the client has to pay/owes to the brokerage.
Realized profit = The amount which has been gained after selling a stock (assuming it is an investment).
Unrealized profit = It is the profit in the portfolio on a particular date but which has not been withdrawn.
Margin = It is amount that is kept as a security deposit with the brokerage for open trades and positions.
