As I understood them

> "Punch\n"

A perforator, a tool to make holes in paper

> "Cover\n"

the first page of a magazine, a newspaper

> "Bind\n"

The name of the side of a book where are attached the pages

> "Saddle stitch\n"

The name of a technic used to attached pages.
Here is a page which show you it, the last picture (sorry, in french ;-) )
http://www.anpage.com/faconnage1.htm
In french "Piqûre à cheval". You have to find the right name in your language.
Search around publishing.

> "Edge stitch\n"

In clothing industry: if you buy trousers that are too long, you make an edge 
stitch to short the trousers without cutting them.
Here, that probabely means that pages are attached on the side, like picture 2 
of the same url, but probabely not with staple

> "Fold\n"

A newpapers is always fold at the middle, from top to bottom.
You can fold it 2, 3 or 4 times to be able to put it in your pocket.
In picture 3, paper is fold once.

> "Trim\n"
> "Bale\n"
> "Booklet maker\n"

A creator of booklet (little (very little?) book)

> "Job offset\n"
>
> If somebody can explain what kind of finishing is every one of them it

Hope this helps, or be a call to more help ;-)
