There is often a misunderstanding among new turners, that you need a certain tool for a certain shape. You can actually turn almost any shape with any tool if you use the tool correctly and understand how the cutting edge works.
I can probably find a description of what all the various shapes on woodturning are called, For example Torus, cove, bead, etc but this won't tell you what tool to use to make that shape.
