If you really want to understand then read "The Art of Unix Programming" http://www.faqs.org/docs/artu/
The terminal is a shell. There are various shells but never mind that now.
Within the shell you call programs. There are many programs. You can install new ones so a 'complete list' is like asking for a complete list of the books in the world. It's vast and it's changing all the time.
But these programs, if they're responsible, follow a reliable pattern. You send input to the program and it returns a text stream that you can watch fly by or direct to a file or '|' (pipe) to another program that will accept that text stream as input and return a text output - that you can pipe to another program and so on.
So the approach is not 'what is available?' but 'what do I want to do?'
And then you google like crazy, post questions on here - or any linux forum.
