Bibtex Entries: fields, classes, etc.

Bibtex sorts out one of the main doubts we usually have in terms of the Bibtex: What the fields that we can use in the description of an item are, what classes are allowed, etc. As far as I understand, Latex is a programming language, so that you could actually change all that if you wanted, and had studied Latex enough, but it is much nicer getting it all from the oven, after cooked, is it not? 

At the moment, I do believe what the mentioned source states, so that we should have: 

An article from a journal or magazine. Required fields: authortitlejournalyear. Optional fields: volumenumberpagesmonthnote.
 A book with an explicit publisher. Required fields: author or editortitlepublisheryear. Optional fields: volume or numberseriesaddresseditionmonthnote.
 A work that is printed and bound, but without a named publisher or sponsoring institution. Required field: title. Optional fields: authorhowpublishedaddressmonth,yearnote.
 The same as INPROCEEDINGS, included for Scribe compatibility.
A part of a book, which may be a chapter (or section or whatever) and/or a range of pages. Required fields: author or editortitlechapter and/or pagespublisher,year. Optional fields: volume or numberseriestypeaddresseditionmonthnote.
