What are the different types of SSL certificates? which one to use to trust a client? are there something like SSL client certificates? Here my requirement is, my server should accept only the requests that are coming in from a trusted clients (end-users), for this I want to issue a cleint certificate for desired clients...how to achieve this? Are there any authoriies who is issuing this kind of certificates ( like verisign, entruts...etc), if so what is the type of that certificate?

Actually I need to use this certificate for client authentication in place of standard authentication (user name, password)? Whom should I approach to get this kind of certificate? and then wanted to share this certificate with my desired users.

Yes, but asking more often won't get answers any faster. Since we don't get paid to do this, we're not standing by 24x7, just checking in when it's convenient. Patience is a Virtue, as our FAQ points out.

Once again, the WikiPedia is a good place to start. It even has pretty pictures:
