The Bitcoin software, network, and concept is called "Bitcoin" with a capitalized "B". Bitcoin currency units are called "bitcoins" with a lowercase "b" -- this is often abbreviated BTC.

Ripples are as centralized and as regulated as fiat currencies are. There's not much point in them, except maybe speculation. One unique thing about the currency, is that all of the coins are already mined, and the bank dispenses them as they are needed, in an artificial way.

Whoever has control of the majority of the chain creation can make up the rules as they go along. I'm not certain about the specifics myself. .

I am also getting  my mind around the ripple thing. If xrps are not mined as bitcoins are, how are they obtained?

The creators of the ripples mined them already, they choose who they give them to, and for how much. They have been giving them away for free to old forum members here.
