types of condoms

Hello everyone, hope you are all doing well.
I just want to improve my safe sex techniques in future, which is why I am asking these questions.
Are all condoms except lambskin condoms effective barriers against HIV?
When experts say, 'microscopic holes in condoms are a myth' and 'condoms do not get holes, when they fail, they break wide open' ; are they referring to ALL TYPES of condoms or just latex condoms?

Thank you!

Yes everything but lambskin (natural). Condoms don't get microscopic holes in them. When a condom fails it fails catastrophically.
