comment Looking for genres or songs similar to the acoustic guitar part at the end of Black Sabbath's Heaven and Hell
Some people use the terms interchangeably, but true medieval music rarely involved any kind of harmony or chords. It was mostly melody and percussion. Ideas like counterpoint and chord progressions evolved as the Medieval period gave way to the Renaissance period and then the Baroque. Very often when you see those fantasy games or movies, the music has been composed in the Renaissance style, so the composer can use counterpoint and chord progressions, which are more familiar to today's listener.

I think this is a legitimate question because it's a chance to talk about a historical style of classical music that has a definite influence on modern metal.

Yes, @Tim, you are absolutely correct. I didn't want to write an entire book on barre chords, so I just thought I would introduce the questioner to the concept of the voicings of the basic first-position, open chords. Feel free to edit and modify my answer, or add your own answer, if you want to explain barre chords.

+1 for iReal Pro and Band-in-a-Box. The former is inexpensive and very simple to use; the latter is expensive and hard to use but produces rewarding results.

comment How to play upstrokes with our hand when playing an acoustic guitar?
If you really need help with this, reading written descriptions of it is not going to help. You need to take lessons with a teacher who can work with you personally.
