The Briley link above is good.
Chokes have no effect on recoil.
The general goal for smaller-size shot for both clays and small-to-mid sized birds is to have roughly a 30" (preferably smaller) circular pattern of evenly spaced pellets at a given target distance. Such patterns break clays and drop birds quite well.
Larger shot -- especially buckshot -- spreads at a slower rate than small birdshot. IIRC #8 birdshot spreads at roughly 2.5 to 3 times the rate of 00 buck. Steel shot requires a more open choke, in the event you are shooting waterfowl.
IMO clays shooters get too worked up about choke brands, dimensions, weight, tube lengths, and constrictions. One of my instructors stated that chokes change patter sizes by inches, but we miss targets by feet.
