001 and 002 are white lab strains. Google "White labs 001" or use 002 and it'll pop up.

Sorry, it's the white labs designation.
WLP001 is California Ale - clean and neutral WLP002 is English Ale - kind of fruity and lower Attenuation

I recently did a split batch of a stout (2.5 gallons in two fermenters). I did half with Denny's Favorite and another with Bell's yeast (American Ale II - 1272 is a good substitute) and both turned out amazing. I hear English ale yeast works well too if you like your stouts to have a little more sweetness.

Safale 05 and 04 are both acceptable for a stout (s04 is a bit sweeter though and s05 is more neutral )
