Dr. Ricardo Estape answered:

What are the types of hymen?

See Below

Vulvovaginitis
There are only really 2 types of hymen, perforate (open) and imperforate (closed). The perforate hymen can come in different types of opening (slit, septum or microperoforate). Which means that they are partially open. If you are seeing your periods, then it is perforate. Once you have intercourse, most hymens will tear to become normal.

I heard theres a type of hymen called fimbriated hymen, what does it look like and will it bleed first time sex like other hymens?

Hymen

Bleeding
This is a piece of membranous tissue inside the vaginal opening. It comes in different shapes and sizes, the most common are annular, fimbriated, lunate, and septate. . Bleeding may occur with any disruption of the hymen regardless of its shape and this may occur with trauma, tampon use, sex or foreign bodies inserted into the vagina. Fimbriated means the edge is serpentine.

I realized after checking the net that some girls have a pinkish, sort of like a lump type of hymen rather than a thin membrane,so is that a type?

hymen

Women
I believe the lump you are referring to is simply a remnant of the hymen which can form the hymenial ring.

For labial/vertical hymen type which its opening extends from 12 o'clock to 6 o'clock, from where does it rupture when it's broken?and does it bleed?

The hymen

Bleeding
The Hymen is a circular ring near the opening of the vagina. Contrary to popular cultural mythology most hymenal rings are open just fine the first time someone has intercourse. It stretches and tears at various spots that are likely unrecognizable to the untrained eye. Overthinking the appearance of the Hymenal ring is likely to be unproductive.

is gerpes type 1 bad?

Cold sores

Immune_system
Herpes(I think this is what you mean) type 1 is the main cause of oral cold sores that the first episode is often painful but if he immune system remains strong many times there might not be a recurrence or very few and far in between. If contacted with the genital area it can go to the genital area as well but not very common.
