can anyone explain what UTF-7/8/16-32 character sets are exactly compared to unicode?
Also
how are you able to represent every unicode character to a unique unicode character using only 7 or 8 bits in UTF-7/8?!

Because each character can be more than one byte. This naturally complicates many string operations, the simplest example being that you need to differentiate between the logical length of a string in characters and the physical length in bytes.
