What would be five different states through which ports on a switch running STP can transition.

Sorry for the many questions, only asking cause like I said in my previous question my knowledge is little in the networking field and any help would be much appreciated.

How do you bypass the forward delay and immediately transition into the forwarding state?
What is a root port?
What is PVST+?
What is 802.1w and 802.1s?
