1. Drawing an 'inside straight', aka a 'gut shot' means ...

You stayed to through the draw with like a (4, 5, 7, 8) and then caught a 6 on the draw.

Drawing an 'outside straight' (which is a much more common play) is if you stayed through the draw with (4,5,6,7) and caught a 3 or an 8. Obviously you have 2X better odds to catch an outside straight. Making an inside straight on the draw is considered extremely lucky.

That's the terminology when playing a game like 5 card draw. That's a game where you are dealt 5 cards, everyone checks, bets, calls, raises, or folds ... then everyone drops 0-4 cards, and gets that number of cards in return from the deck, creating a new hand. That process of trading in the cards is called 'the draw'. Then everyone checks/bets/calls/raises/folds again, then remaining hands are 'shown' to see who wins the pot.
