Attached is a png file showing all the various seed files I have for my microstation version. Can someone explain to me what all these are and when to use them?
I know what the 2d and 3d seed files are for.

See MicroStation help.
When you create a new DGN file, MicroStation copies a seed file to the new file. If you open a seed file, you will find that it's a blank DGN file with the specified coordinate system (e.g. metric or imperial) and other settings. A new file created using that seed file will be identical.
MicroStation delivers 2D and 3D metric and imperial seeds. Other apps may deliver their own seed files. You have a number of DWG seed files that are used for the same purpose when creating a DWG file.
You can create your own seed files. You might do that, for example, to specify your own coordinate system or other settings that you want for all the DGN files in your projects.

I am familiar with seed files but what is the transeed and model seed? I thought a model seed is a 3d representation x, y, and z and a 3dseed is the same.

MicroStation Help tells us: Default seed file for DWG, CGM, IGES, OBJ, and 3DS translations.

A DGN file contains one or more models. When you create a new model, you can choose the model seed.
