In a 98 Cavalier once the lifters get used to the style been driven do they loosen up If so how can you tighten them?

It has nothing to do with the lifters getting use to your driving style. Lifters rarely loosen up. Lifters wear over time, thus causing the gap to widen, creating lifter clatter. On solid lifters, that is why they must be adjusted periodically. On hydraulic lifters, this is not necessary, as they automatically adjust for the gap due to wear, if they were installed and adjusted correctly in the first place.

Does a 95 MPV V6 have hydraulic or solid lifters?

It has hydraulic lifters that are known to get noisy. Mazda sells a shim set that can be installed under each lifter to reduce clearance so that the lifters don't require as much pump-up travel. The lifters are located in the ends of the rocker arms, replacing or shimming them requires the removal of part of the intake plenum. You can also buy new lifters in the aftermarket for about $20. each, but there is 12 so it's not exactly cheap.
