Welcome to the Support Communities!
Blue messages are iMessage conversations (Apple's messaging service)
Green messages are SMS - standard text messages.
SMS is the acronym for Short Message Service.
MMS is the acronym for Multimedia Message Service (audio, pictures, video can be added to messages).
With MMS turned on, you will see a little camera icon in the bottom left corner of your screen when you are in the Messages app. Also you will see the word iMessage where you type your text.

See the iPhone User Guide - pgs. 64-66 to learn more about Messages:
The article that you referenced, iOS: Using Messages explains all of the parameters and requirements for sending messages on your iPhone.
I hope this information helps ....
Have a great day!
