Basics of Arpeggios

Hey, im tryin to figure out Arpeggios. I know some simple three chord Arp. but Im trying to figure out some stuff. First, what by definition is an arpeggio? Is it only playing the first third and fifth of a chord or can u play any note in from a chord and have it be an arpeggio?

second, what are some different types of arpeggios u can play because i know three string minor major and diminished and i dont really know how to construct more arpeggios, or what ther types there are. any basic information would be much appreciated. Thanks! and sorry for bein such a n00b
