What do these mean? thullaccayas pārājikas and the saṃghādisesas.

And is there a way to guage the weight of the sin of the different categories?

Are there any vows if broken, automatically destory your ordination?

The Buddhist Monastic Code — Glossary, by Ṭhānissaro Bhikkhu wrote: Pārājika: defeat, the most serious grade of offenses.
Saṅghādisesa: involving the Community in the initial (ādi) and subsequent (sesa) acts required in making amends for the offense; the second most serious grade of offenses.
Thullaccaya: grave offense, the most serious of the confessable offenses.
Pācittiya: entailing confession; one of the minor classes of offenses.
Dukkaṭa: wrong doing, the lightest grade of offense.
A pārājika automatically destroys your ordination for life.
A saṅghādisesa is a (temporary) suspension requiring review from the Saṅgha.
