Is there much difference if I use red or white cooking wine? I saw red cooking wine (Burgundy), white cooking wine, Marsalas, Sherry. What's good for what?

Neither. Use wine that you would drink. Any white or red that's not expensive will do in a recipe. I have never used cooking wine because it has salt in it.Differences Between Cooking Wine & Wine | eHow

I grew up in wine country. What is good for the cook is good for the pot. Buy a reasonably priced wine you or your guests will also enjoy as drink.
Color and taste are the difference. You should not use a red with white meat (unless the recipe specifies it) or white with a red meat/dark veggie dish.

use a bottle of real wine that tastes at least good enough to drink. Don't waste money by cooking with expensive ones, drink those.
