If you're doing this entirely by hand, tracking hand count and hands per hour is a bit overkill in my opinion (unless you're single tabling I suppose). If you figure that on average there are 85 hands an hour per table, you can use that time to instead watch the table. I would definitely factor in your mental state, I use 1-3, as well. This will help you ...
HoldemManager 2 and PokerTracker 4 are still the market leaders. HoldemManager 2 uses a lot of ram, especially when you play 12+tabled and use a HUD. But when you play on MacOSx you can only use PokerTracker 4 - because Holdem Manager 2 is Windows only. But it also depends on which stakes you play.

Not sure exactly what game you're playing. Anyway, as far as I've always seen, bb means big blinds and BB means big bets. In most poker variants, the betting size doubles at some point in the hand.

I also like the PokerZebra software (available on the MAC app store for a few pounds) to calculate pot odds quickly.
I agree, FPDB is a great, valid, and valuable utility that is 100% and open source last time I checked. And it works just fine at sealswithclubs :) If you want a relatively 'light' database and hand tracker/analyzer, DEFINITELY try out FPDB. If you are looking for a highly valuable, and game changing leak buster, I suggest HoldemManager HIGHLY. Do not ...
There are no publicly available AIs to practice against and train with at the level I'm afraid. If you're looking for an AI to play against you can look at Poker Academy, their site has been up and down in recent years but that considered the best limit AI publicly available. Their no limit AIs are rubbish however.
