comment clearing doubt over a definition
The description on Wikipedia seems pretty understandable to me. The original paper could also be helpful - dx.doi.org/10.1109%2FSFCS.2000.892006 The bracket notation is a quirk of computer science and should ideally be described in any textbook that uses it.

Oh! This is excellent! I think this has finite products but not all finite limits. Right?

This is not an explicit requirement but it is implied: if $X$ is itself inhabited then it is clearly isomorphic to a subobject of an inhabited object.

comment What are the differences between rings, groups, and fields?
That used to be the case but most authors today define a ring to have $1$. The unusual looking term rng is sometimes used for the concept without $1$.

comment Is empty set a proper subset of itself?
$B \setminus A \neq \varnothing$ does not imply that $A$ is a subset of $B$. (But, if it is, then it is indeed a proper subset.)
