Yo, tú, usted, él, ella, nosotros, nosotras, ellos, and ellas are subject pronouns. They are the equivalent of the English I, you, he, she, it, we, they words, and they can be the subject of a sentence. SpanishDict's guide to Subject Pronouns is a good place to start.

Soy, eres, es, somos, son are conjugations of one of Spanish's "to be" verbs. They are like am, are, is in English. More info here: http://www.wordreference.com/conj/EsVerbs.aspx?v=ser Don't be intimidated by this humongous chart. Just look at the top left column, Indicative Present.
