you can check linux distros from here :: https://www.dunebook.com/best-linux-distro/

Also :: https://distrotest.net/ (you can test 311 different linux distro in this website via your browser)

As a linux expert i preferred Kali Linux ::: https://www.kali.org/

I appreciate the resources, but I'm about as new to this as new can be. By "distros" do you different variants of the OS? I'll probably take some time off this weekend to look into this further.

I've heard the linux is a secure and streamlined OS, but lacks in functionality and support in regards to some software/apps. This would impede me seeing as that I take the weekends off to play some games with friends, and I hear that many games don't support linux.

Ok let me explain ::

Zorin OS :: Elegant,simple,clean interface, easy to use , still under development,

Elementry OS :: Elegant,simple,clean interface, easy to use , still under development

Ubuntu :: Very good and useful but selling user data to amazon-google

Kali Linux :: Weaponized Cyber Security Distro Under development of Offensive Security

Black-Arch :: Heavy Weaponized Cyber Security Distro Under development of own team (28 GB Main ISO)

Parrot Security OS :: Weaponized Cyber Security Distro Under development of own team

Fedora OS / Cent OS / Red Hat :: Really good, stable but little bit hard to use need code knowledge for long-time use

Debian :: Main core of ubuntu/kali/parrot and many others you should setup many softwares for make usingable

Arch or Manjaro :: Arch core based modern,basic , clean interface, have really strong core features but need code knowledge.

Kodachi / Tails / Whonix :: For Privacy and secure network connections ...

3CX Phone System :: IP-SIP Phone System

Untangle NG :: Firewall os

For Detail search :: https://distrowatch.com/search.php

I say i preferred Kali (you can learn much more thing with kali) and as a advice stay away from ubuntu.
and don't try deepin too.it is sucks.
Also don't use KDE desktop (never). gnome desktop preferred but you can choose something else.

If you wanna change gnomes style  :: https://www.gnome-look.org/browse/cat/


check this pdf guide : : https://tldp.org/LDP/intro-linux/intro-linux.pdf  
if you are quick learner go to chapter :: Appendix A. Where to go from here? Page 196

Just stick with your current OS. It's not worth bothering with imo if you're a casual user who games here and there.

I've heard that people can load 2 seperate OS's on a single computer, would that be possible with windows and linux? Or is it just not feasible for someone who would just be hoping to learn a thing or two.

You mean like a partition? You could go for it and play around for sure. Just look for guides on how to setup linux partition/VM.

yeah, there are some linux distro's suited for every day use such as Ubuntu, however there are distro's which are not suited to be a daily driver such as Kali, Black Arch and Parrot Security Edition.
if you're a beginner to Linux I would recommend using Ubuntu since it is easy to use and decent for a daily driver, once you increase your knowledge on linux then you could potentially move to something more intermediate such as Arch Linux or move onto other distros.
The first distro I used was Ubuntu and then I progressively moved onto other distros as i expanded my knowledge on linux.
hope this helps.
