I'd start by reviewing ArcGIS Pro | 2D and 3D GIS Mapping Software  and ArcGIS Online | Cloud-Based GIS Mapping Software for an overview of each.  It sounds like you've worked with ArcGIS Pro, so should have at least some familiarity with that.  Basically, Pro is desktop software that is installed on a machine (physical desktop, laptop, or VM) while ArcGIS Online is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering.  For further, specific questions, you could ask in either the ArcGIS Pro or ArcGIS Online GeoNet spaces.

Hope this helps!

Geoprocessing, editing, cartography, etc. capabilities are far more extensive in ArcGIS Pro than ArcGIS Online, so depending on the work someone needs to accomplish, one of the two may be better suited to meet their needs - or very commonly, users leverage capabilities of both Pro and Online!

For learning, Learn ArcGIS  is a great place to start.  You can use a trial for learning purposes, and there is also ArcGIS for Personal Use for Noncommercial GIS Projects that could be a good fit for you for learning purposes.
