Angelfish IDs and terms

I have 8 angelfish that I’ve enjoyed but never really thought about what types they are. I’m going to be reducing the number of fish I keep and I’d like to be able to label the angelfish should I advertise. I’ve heard lots of terms but don’t really now what they mean:

1. blushing
2. blue blushing
3. ghost
4. veil vs. super veil
5. gold marble vs. koi
6. pearl scale
7. sunset
8. and, I’m sure there are more

I have one fish that puzzles me since he looks pure gold but then colors up when breeding. I’m amazed he can add a couple stripes and have his fins turn from white to black.

The gold colored fish is the male in the pair shot and the shot below is the same male.

I may not be helping but the two pictured look like silver ghosts.
