Some of the Move lists on certain heroes says during startup. I am not exactly sure what that means. Any help would be appreciated.

It means the beginning part of the attack's animation. Exact duration, who knows.

Basically what it means is how long a move takes before it becomes active (in MMA for example it would be like how long a fist would take to reach a velocity where it would do damage.) In a fighting game it means how long a move needs to take before it can deal the damage.
