You're right - Hibernate has various levels of caching with various configurability. Caching is an important mechanism for improving performance but, used incorrectly, can actually degrade performance. The most difficult to understand/configure are the 2nd level cache and the query cache. Here is an article I consider quite helpful in describing Hibernate caching and particularly the query cache. It also has links to other articles on similar topics.
