I can't seem to figure out what the differences are between the different catalysts or rather how they affects me.

e.g.) When a catalysts scales with int, does that mean that magic does more damage or that melee does more damage?

You have it exactly right. Catalysts affect magic damage the same way that swords affect melee damage.

A catalyst with 150 magic damage will do more damage than a catalyst with 100 magic damage (before scaling), and a catalyst with A magic scaling will do more damage than a catalyst with C magic scaling (assuming they have the same base magic damage).
