When talking about people in history, "great" generally means "having had much influence on history."

I love that Duolingo teaches me this, yet I haven't been told what 'I would like' is.

I think you'll learn that once you get to subjunctives.

In case you must know right now, it's "ich möchte".

Is it impossible to translate "toll" by "fun"?

It'd be quite a stretch.

I put wild and it worked.

It doesn't mean "wild" here. "toll" in the sense of "wild" or "crazy" is highly marked.

"toll" means more like "great" or "cool".
