Ok so basically its a password hacking program that just tries about every single word and letter and number sequence for you until it cracks it, is that right?

Not quite, What you talking about is brute force. A Rainbow table is a way of doing all the brute force type computations ahead of time and saving them. Which also allows you to give that data to other people.
