Depends on what type of riding you want to do. For BMX-type stunts - get a BMX. For going some serious distances both on and off-road - get a MTB. Don't really know what you mean by jump bike.

What is better an bmx or an mountain bike?

It's more a question of "different" than outright "better".If you want to use your bike to get around with, then a mountain bike with gears and bigger wheels is better. It will be faster, less fatiguing and offer greater rider comfort.But if you want to do BMX style riding, with jumps and tricks and that, then a BMX is a better choice.

What is a BMX trial bike?

No such thing. Trials is a sub-sport of mountain biking, often called "mountain bike trials". It's a sport similar to motorcycle trials where one takes a light bike and hops around an obstacle course. You might have heard "BMX" and "trials" in the same sentence because a BMX bicycle can essentially make a good trials bike with minimal modifications.

Can you put a sprocket from a mountain bike onto a bmx bike?

Probably not. BMX bikes usually have freewheels while MTBs usually have freehubs, and these don't mix. You might be able to use parts from a single-speed MTB on a BMX though.

Do you need a bmx bike to do tricks?

Not necessarily, but if you want to get into serious tricks like tail whips and bar spins i suggest you get a bmx. but you can easily do a wheelie or a small bunny hop with a mountain bike.

What is it called when you bmx with a mountain bike?

You're probably thinking of "Dirt riding" or "Dirt Jumping".
