Speaking of terminology, this link seems to provide some clarity with CSA examples to help in the process.

I found those stamps hiding in one of purchased unsorted glassines. This is the first time I see confederate stamps and I know nothing about them. Obviously all of them are "facsimile" copies and it is explicitly printed on the back side of each stamp. I just wonder - what are those numbers for (like Facsimile No.205 etc.)?

These are the products of TASCO (Tatham Stamp Co.) who made cardboard cover booklets for identifying CSA stamp types and also Washington-Franklin types. For this one, you mounted/hinged the (included?) fakes in the spaces provided, matching up the facsimile number with the space in the booklet.

Some of the pages are shown in various threads here on SCF like:
