I didn't really get the chance to use mods in this game, so I am using FIRS 3 as a first. But I cam e across a problem, I have no understanding of how I can find the vehicles for the set, Is there a specific mod I should download for FIRS 3 vehicles? Or do i have to look for tons of mods that have these cargo vehicles?

As you found, there are many grfs (mods). Players have a wide range of favourites, so there's no single answer. :)

I often use:
  • Iron Horse 2 for trains
  • Road Hog for road vehicles
  • Squid Ate FISH for ships
  • CHIPS for stations
  • AV9.8 for planes
These grfs have good support for FIRS 3.

Disclaimer: I made 4 out of 5 of those grfs. I also made FIRS 3. Other players have their own recommendations.

Also, if you like the original OpenTTD vehicle set that's included with the game, then download OpenGFX+ Trains and OpenGFX+ Road Vehicles. These are the original vehicles encoded to support NewGRF industry sets.

In my game I was using ECS & FIRS vehicle set v2014.11.26. Is OpenGFX+ generally preferable to this one for any reason?

It legally uses all the original OpenTTD vehicles, and as it's maintained by some of the core devs it's always going to be up-to-date with future releases. Honza hasn't visited the forums in nearly 4 years and hasn't updated his set in 6.

Thank you, now it's very clear what the advantages are
