The jib's sheet controls the angle of the jib (sail) to the wind. It is attached to the lower end of the jib that is farthest aft.
A ring on a stay attached to the head of a jib or staysail. A device used to attach a jib sail to its rigging.
I believe the term you're looking for is "sloop."
the J dimension of a sailboat is the length from the forestay attachment on the deck to the mast.for sizing a headsail (jib/genoa) a 100% jib would have an LP (or approximately foot) of J, a #1 jib would have a 155% the length of J.
a dinghy would be a small (6 to 16 foot) sailboat, these can have almost any sail rig. the type of rig you described is called a sloop. a sloop is a sailboat with a triangular mainsail and a jib (this sail configuration is called a marconi rig, or bermudian rig), and are very common. so a small, one masted vessel with a mainsail and jib would just be called a sloop, or dinghy.
The number three jib is the smallest of three headsails on a sailboat and it is sometimes called a storm jib, because it is the one most likely used during storm conditions. If a boat has more than three headsails, the number three sail would be smaller than number two, but may not be the smallest headsail on the boat. For example if a boat has four jibs, say a 170, a 150, a 110 and a storm jib, then the 110 would be considered the number 3 jib and the storm jib would be number 4.
Yes you can use a jib that is short on the luff and the foot. You won't catch as much wind so you will sacrifice some speed but it will work.
James Jib Brown goes by Jib, and Papa.
Depending on how it is rigged it could be the jib, Flying jib or spinnaker.The most forward sail is normally called a jib.On vessels with more than one jib, the names of the jibs (from forward to aft) are: Flying jib, Outer jib, Inner jib and Fore (topmast) staysail.

The jib sail is the triangular staysail in front of the foremast. Sometimes a spinnaker replaces the jib. They are both generally referred to as "headsails".
