Since Slapshot proved how much of a dumbass he is, the RS is the base one, the GS is the middle grade one that has a little more modifications to the body, and maybe suspension

The GS is a sportier package than the RS lets just say that, if you don't care about upgrades then just get the RS for basic transportation

RS is lighter and had smaller wheels and tires
GS is the opposite with the option of leather
They are both 2 liters but I've heard the GS engine is better.
Spyders are 2.4's and I am sure they had performance parts, possibly shared with the 4 cyl. Sebring Convertible.

Personally, I'd get the Spyder. I also think that the '96-'99 Clipse's look much better than the newer 2001 models (I think they look like chick rides such as the new beetle). my

Those names apply to 1st and 2nd gens, first gen lasted to 1994, 2nd gen lasted to 99. 3rd gen is not worth getting.

You could always get an Eagle Talon, which is the same thing as the Eclipse but under a different brand. Package codes from worst to best go as follows, base, ESi, TSi, and TSi AWD. Plymouth Lasers were also around in the 1st gen, which was the same thing as Talon and Eclipse.
