Default Dips.

When doing dips, I edge my feet out, and go down and up 3 times with my lifting routine. When doing this, I feel a great amount of tension in the middle of my chest, and kind of lower. But the next day when after doing dips, I don't feel sore or anything.

Just thinking it should be sore because I have never really have done dips before.

Soreness is not a sign of a good workout. Go up and down more than 3 times and do weighted dips or at least work your way up.

Dips are one of the best overall upper body lifts you can do since it works almost everything. The squat of the upper body.

Not sure about all the variations you're referring to, however, as a chest exercise, make sure to lean slightly forward throughout the movement. This will maximize the most chest recruitment.
BTW, I agree with Dr.X...dips are great, especially weighted dips.

A weighted dip is where you have an additional weight on your body such as a dumbbell between your legs
