    Is there any special format a video has to be for it to go on my iPod, because they wont sync how they are.

    They have to be encoded in h.264 or mpeg4 with a max resolution of 640x480.
    You can use HandBrake to encode videos for the iPod Touch. There is a preset which handles all the settings for you.

    Not necessarily the max. Some can be 720 x 400 or 704 x 400. It really depends on the Aspect ratio.

    For 16:9 videos, if you don't plan to hook it up to a TV, 470 x 272 is a good resolution to use.

    16:9 is good for the aspect ratio. The format should be .mp4 or h.264 in order for them to work. I use the Videora iPod Touch Converter, but there are many options to choose from. Search .mp4 converter or iPod Touch converter. There are quite a few to choose from and I'm sure you'll find one you like.
