Can you run a gaming PC completely on an SSD with a large amount of memory rather than a HHD?

An SSD is the equivalent of a hard disk, so there's nothing (apart from expense) to stop you using this setup. If by "large amount of memory" you are talking about RAM, that's a separate issue and is a good, and relatively cheap, idea (as long as you are running a 64-bit OS).

What effect it would have would depend on the games you are playing but, certainly in my experience, disk speed is not normally the determining factor in games performance.

What are the main and best types of RAM and what is the difference between them?

Please don't triple post.

As you are asking rather a lot of basic questions I think you need to do a little research off your own bat. Google is a useful tool for such research.

Yes, but why would you want to? Large capacity SSDs are very expensive. A 512GB SSD costs over $300. You can buy an entire entry level computer at Walmart for under $300!

You'd be better off using a smaller SSD (120-128GB) for the OS & a standard HDD (1TB) to run the programs & store your data.

And STOP asking about RAM!
