|Also what is awg versus i believe utp|
AWG = American Wire Gauge and refers the thickness of the actual wire.
UTP = Unshielded Twisted Pair which mean the cable is unshielded and each pair of wires is twisted together to reduce interference. The two specifications are not related to each other. You can also get STP = Shielded Twisted Pair but that is only used in special applications.
Cat5, Cat5e etc referes only to the cable. |t says nothing about the connectors on the end but as they are all 8 wire (4 x 2 twisted pairs) they nearly always have an RG45 plug on the end as that has eight connectors.
I heard 6a breaks easily...
No more than any other cable. It depends whether you have solid core cable or braided cable.
Solid core is designed for permanent installations where the cable is installed and not touched. Cable that is going to be handled a lot like drop cables and what you are planning should be braided cable as it is more resistant to breaking.
Solid core cable has better electrical characteristics than braided cable and should be used whenever possible but not where it is going to be handled and is likely to break.
