What are the examples of attribute data that you will find on a topographic map

What maps, what device and what company. They all make significant difference to your answer. In general, Topo maps indicate topography... that is where things are high and where they are low, gentle and steep changes in the land. often these are for hiking so some maps will have trails, some will have national forests or parks, others will have roads and points of interest like gas and groceries as well.

GPS won't fully reset

Resetting will not delete tracks - you must delete the track(s) individually. Your manual is here. Turn to page 26 and read "Using Tracks" to learn how to delete them.

Good luck!

I am going hiking in a wilderness area. I want to use mjy garmin 255wt to get back to the trail head in case I get lost. I know that I can save my location before heading out, but what then?

OK, you know how to save your trailhead by touching your vehicle icon and saving the location. At this point you can also select GoTo to provide routing. Your standard 255WT database is for driving, so it is not going to have your trails or terrain data, but you can go to the settings, route options, and select direct rather than on-roads and it will draw a straight line to your trailhead. It is still a good idea to carry a compass & map with you, but you can get a good idea of which way you are going by walking and seeing where you are headed relavent to your course line. I like using the display set to "Track-up" for off-road, so the top of the display is the direction I am going. Some people prefer North Up, but that is disorienting for me.

Can my garmin 260 be used for hiking?

No your unit would need to be compatible with the MapSource Topo maps which your unit is not.

I lost my mobile nokia 3110c in college

Unfortunately, cell phones can not be pin-pointed to their location. If your cell phone is turned on and has GPS, then maybe. But if your phone does not have GPS, chances of finding it are slim unless some nice person finds it and gives someone on your contacts list a call. The main problem is, if your phone is off, there is really no way to find it. It would be like trying to track down a rock. I am sorry that I could not help very much. Hopefully you can find a new phone on ebay! Maybe claim that it got stolen on your home owner's insurance so they cover a new phone!

Total elevation gain consistently way too high (20+ percent)

I have the same garmin, and have the same problem.
The high changes even during flat runs so when added you have this overamount of climbing.
I just reduce the points of the track and then the addition is more accurate.
My problem now is that the GPS stops working during runs (turns itself off). Awful!!!
