Start with the lists shown on Mach3 Mill.
Not me driving the engine - I'm better looking.

No, there is an on screen list. Look for the boxes "GCode" and "MCode" and click on them.

Most are self explanatory, but to get a better explanation, trying "googling" GCode and see what it comes up with. There are one or two articles for free that you can read. It usually gives the syntax for the more complicated ones.

THESE ARE SHOWN ON THE "MILL" SCREENS - NOT THE "LATHE" SCREENS  1024.SET. YOU COULD USE SCREEN 4 AND COPY THEM ACROSS

Here is one that I put in a script button on the Turn screen.
I only wish it had the Letter words that go with the G76 threading cycle.

In the latest Mill screen when you press on the G-Code button an html pops up and has much better explanations of the code.
Think most of the turn functions are listed in the manual though, are they not?

I put that htm button on the turn screen and added what i posted above....turn specific code . A lot of the mill code is not for turn.
