My impressions not intended to be an argument with anybody. All musical labels are vague. Listen to the examples to get a feel for them..... Acid jazz is fairly raw and edgy and I haven't listened a whole lot. I gather it's also called Chamber Jazz. Google search: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S6lDGgs7jAc
Cool jazz is hip and sophisticated much like it's namesake:
You want to understand funk, listen to James Brown. Funk is a rhythmic structure and it doesn't matter that JB wasn't jazz. Funk is funk.
Fusion is anything anybody wants it to be. Many will say that it began with *****'s Brew, probably rightly so. I would go for the best, not the first:
