My book is at home, so i can't reference it, but generally speaking, when a recipe simply indicates 'sugar', it's granulated table sugar they're calling for..good ol' fashioned sucrose. although often times you can use another sugar; sometimes you can't. experimenting is fun 😎

The major difference between granulated sugar, castor sugar and confectionary sugar is mostly the size of the granules (confectionary sugar usually contains a little cornstarch to prevent clumping). So theoretically you can carmalize any of the above sugars.
Corn syrup and glucose are both inverted sugar (to prevent your caramel from crystalizing) however corn syrup is usually flavored and sometimes contain high fructose corn syrup (you can read about it a few places). I also find it sweeter than glucose. You should find that they perform the same for marshmallows though.
