    SysNAND is basically the firmware installed onto the 3DS itself.
    emuNAND is firmware that gets loaded from another source using an exploit.
    This is oversimplifying it but that's basically what it does.

    Since your sysNAND is on 7.2, it's best to keep it on that version. It's also best to, using the tutorials here, back up your sysNAND to the SD card.

    behind a parental advisory sticker
    cfw= custom firmware
    nand= system firmware
    emunand= an emulated copy of your nand (loaded with patches to allow deeper access to the system)
    sysnand= your systems nand (usually loaded with cfw to allow patches to allow deeper access to the system)
    cia= installable (to your sysnand/emunand) 3ds app and/or game

    your 3ds will currently work with rxtools just use the link @Pingouin7 linked for you
