I don't understand these commands

Chain, Chain2, Chain3 (how many chains are there?).

What does extern do? Is this just "go to a statenumber in another .dlg file"

There are really only two. CHAIN and CHAIN3 are the exact same command. It is with CHAIN that you can have state triggers, an unlimited number of speakers, transition conditions, actions, transition lists at the end, etc.

CHAIN2 is old, legacy syntax. It only supports two speakers, does not support state triggers or a variety of other things CHAIN allows. Its use is discouraged these days although you'll still find it in some old mods.

Yes. If you're staying in the same DLG, you use GOTO (or + , if you're using the abbreviated REPLY syntax.)

Just this once, Jason failed to plug his own work, so I'll jump in and do it for him. Why don't you check out the lovely CHAIN tutorials in the WeiDU readme? :-) Hope you like pizza.
