Completely clueless newbie here....

According to wikipedia, 35mm film is actually 135mm. 35mm film is the most common film used by point and shoot plus SLRs right? Does that mean a 125mm film cannot be used in a 35mm SLR camera? Also, does it mean a 125mm film can also have different ISOs?

You should spell check before you post... Did you mean 120mm or 125mm?

There is a big difference between 135mm and 120mm. 135mm is the common slide or negative you see them still selling in photo developing shops, supermarket..etc. YOu can get a maximum of 35 frames.

The 120mm is actually slide or negative film meant for MEDIUM FORMAT cameras. It is larger then 135mm film. The film is rolled up on a spool and this type of film is used mainly by professionals using medium format cameras like Hasselbald, Mamiya..etc. Google them and you will find more details about them that is if you are interested in purchasing these cameras and used those film. These 120mm slides or negative also come in various ISOs but not as many choices as the 135mm. A roll of 120mm gives you only 16 frame maximum.
