a cylinder is the "hole" where the piston slides up and down. the more cylinders the vehicle has the more power and the smoother the engine will run.

The ignition cylinder is the part you turn your key in to start the car, this is in its housing.

can you jump a 6 cylinder with a 4 cylinder

The gas is shot into the cylinder where it is compressed, then ignited. This causes the cylinder to move up and down within the cylinder block. As the cylinders move they turn the drive shaft which then provides power to the car.

No a six cylinder does not in anyway mean that you have a faster car. How fast a car is has far too many variables to state that the number of cylinder would be the determining factor. the only way that six cylinders might possibly mean a faster car would be if the motor were by the same manufacturer in the same year and model automobile. Such as if six cylinder were an option as opposed to a four cylinder in say a 2001 ford mustang. Off the line production model would yes be a faster car than the four cylinder, but not faster than the eight cylinder. However after market modifications to the motor could cause a four cylinder to be faster than the six cylinder or the six to be faster than the eight. The most influential factors in determining a faster car would be the horsepower to weight and gear ratios.

You do not need to replace the cylinder you need to replace the whole car around it and sell me the whole car (that was around you good working cylinder) for 2 bucks

a seal (i.e seal) between the cylinder and the head on a car
