1. VHF/UHF refer to the frequency band they operate on, VHF being 30-300Mhz, and UHF being 300-3,000Mhz. You'll want a UHF radio that operates in the 450-480Mhz band most likely, but check and see what others are running as Dante said.

2. Technically you need a license to operate any unapproved radio equipment (so, anything not and FRS or GMRS radio ) on the FRS and GMRS bands. But you shouldn`t have a problem using it at games.

3. `Programming` refers to inputting frequencies into a radio and assigning them number keys, also can fill the radio with a number of other variables like channel spacing.

Google is your friend, try the following links to learn more about radio communications;
