Color Calibration

Product Name: VersaLink® C405 Color Multifunction Printer
Operating System: Windows 10 x64

Can someone please explain the terms and procedure used for color calibration on the C405?  I can not find definitions or detail on what anything means anywhere.  The documentation doesn't really say anything.  Various tech support reps could not explain the procedure or what the steps and terms mean either.  

What is screen type?   It appears redundant to target job type.  I don't see how the selections all mesh up.  

How does this protocol work, as far as selecting the options?  

Thank you.
