Access lists are used to control traffic going into and out of a router.  You create an access list and then apply it either inbound or outbound (or both).  Inbound means traffic going into the router and outbound means traffic leaving the router.

RIP, IGRP, and OSPF are different kinds of routing algorithms.  They transmit information about the network.  RIP and IGRP use a notion of hop counts to decide what the best path is.  OSPF uses costs (which can be automatically or manually set) to determine the best path someplace.

There is no one "best" routing protocol.  With a proper network design, generally any one of them can be used for a routing protocol.  There are always exceptions.

While IGRP is close to RIP in design, it has been obsoleted by EIGRP (E for enhanced) which is closer to OSPF in how it routes packets.

Sample configs (for a cisco)

router rip
 network 10.0.0.0

router igrp 2003
 network 10.0.0.0

router ospf 2003
 network 10.0.0.0 0.0.0.255 area 0
 network 192.168.0.0 0.0.255.255 area 1

Cisco has more configuration samples than you could shake a stick at.  Go there for more information.
