Well, that is slightly confusing. Why isn't there just one way to say it?

Like in sapnish el or ella (Not using accents, I know) informal or friendly or Ud. or Usted in formal (Like to an adult)?

Yeah, the first one is what you would use with strangers, the second is what you use with friends or family. Very similar to Usted/Tu tenses in Spanish.

And "Alo" is used... only on the phone... It really just sounds like the English "hello" with a Polish accent XD

A lot of languages have a formal and informal greeting.

Yeah but there is also "hi" which I guess is more informal. And "What's up?" And then you can get into the more silly greetings, like "Yo you yiggedy yo!" XD

I don't know, I'm not a linguist, nor do I wish to be.
