Does red light or blue light have more energy? What is that relation to frequency?

Blue light has more energy because it has a shorter wavelength. Blue light has a higher frequency than red light.

Blue light has more energy and a shorter wavelength, and thus oscillates more(higher frequency) than red light.

How can we figure out what type of light has a shorter/longer frequency? Is there a chart or acronym for this?

There is an acronym for visible light from longest to shortest wavelength is ROY-G-BIV (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violent). I don't know any acronyms for the rest but the general graph/chart from shortest to longest is: gamma rays, x-rays, ultraviolet, visible light (ROY-G-BIV backwards), infrared, radio waves.
