So just to clarify, Exergonic and endergonic refer to Gibb's free energy whereas exothermic and endothermic only have to do with heat?

Endergonic/Exergonic refer to Gibbs Free Energy.
Endothermic/Exothermic refer to enthalpy.

I find it helpful to remember the whole exergonic thing by thinking exerGonic -> G(ibbs free energy)! I don't know if anyone would find this useful but it sure helps me keep the terms straight :)

yeah, the first 2 terms are for gibbs and the later 2 are for heat.
