Each materia changes your stats a bit, it will tell you if the stats go up or down. As for the limit breaks each character gets a specific one. Peace

1. The materia have specifications on them. Some take down like 5% of your health and summoning ones take up to 10 or 15% of your health away sometimes. You have to read the specifications of them over in the left side box.
2. There are 2 characters that arn't esential to get. You can only get them by doing certain quests. The limit breaks probably belong to them but since you don't have them, you can't use them.

Ok, if you equip materia to a character it will have an effect on it's wepons and how you fight. You're characters stats will be affected. For example, when you equip attack materia you're hp will be lowered, different materia has different affects on your character, if you're unsure, experiment a bit with you're materia to get the hang of what type of materia reduces or givs bonusses to wich stat. Hope I helped!

That's just the way Materia goes. It's like what Cloud says in the Materia Tutorial, Materia is like a double-edged sword, it will strengthen other parts while making other things weaken. That's just how materia works.

As for your Limit Break items they can be used on your party. Omnislash is Clouds, Highwind is Cids, Cosmo Memories is Red XIII's, Catastrophe is Barrets(I think), All Creation is Yuffie's, Final Heaven is Tifa's, Chaos is Vincent's. I think Cait Sith learns his Final Limit Break.
