What does these modes mean?

NXL isn't used in tournaments much anymore, it is similar to psp, except instead of three round burst your gun goes full auto. Most fields don't allow this. Millennium is a bit different. If you can pull the trigger above 7bps, the gun will go up to its rate of fire cap, whatever that may be (say your gun is capped at 15bps, as long as you pull above 7bps it will shoot 15bps) its much more in the middle, not full auto or three round burst, and if you slow back down to 7, it backs down to 7. Billy ball is a mode developed by smart parts, it only allows you to fire one ball every 2 seconds ish. Its made not to scare new players with "full auto" guns. Another mode is auto response, which fires on both the pull and release of the trigger. "Ramping" is a generic term used to describe anything that is between full auto, 3 shot burst and semi, like nxl psp and millennium.
"Walking the trigger" is a technique used when using an electronic marker, you alternate pulling with your index and middle finger
Hope this helps! Have fun out there!

- PSP Ramping – Ramping begins after 3 shots; the player must maintain at least one pull per second to achieve/maintain ramping. The marker may then fire up to (and no more than) three balls per trigger pull in a "burst" fashion. Rate of fire cannot exceed 12.5 balls per second (as of 2011), even if the player pulls the trigger 5 times per second or faster.
- NXL Ramping – Ramping begins after three shots; the player needs only to hold down the trigger to maintain fully automatic fire. Rate of fire cannot exceed 15 balls per second. Firing must cease immediately upon the trigger being released.
- Millennium Ramping – Ramping begins after six trigger pulls at a minimum rate of 7.5 pulls per second; the player must maintain 7.5 trigger pulls per second to maintain ramping. Rate of fire cannot exceed 10.5 balls per second. When the player ceases to pull the trigger during ramping, no more than one extra ball may be fired after the last pull.
this is to further explain ramping which the other guy couldn't really explain.
