"skip trc" means to skip the trc you made on the previous row or round. You do not skip any chains made between trc's, unless your pattern specifically tells you to do so.

[2trc,ch1,2trc](=one group)all in next trc -- you had some instructions given previously, now on the top of the next trc stitch you will work 2 trc, make a chain and then work 2 more trc's all in the same stitch. This sounds like a corner to me.

skip 2 trc, 3 trc in next space between next 2 trc, == now skip the next 2 trc stitches. On your previous row/round you had instructions that had you work 2 trc, chain some number and then work more trc. After the next 2 trc stitches which you are skipping, you will have a space created by chains. In that space, not in the chain, you will work the instructions that follow which is to "[2trc, ch 3, 2tc](=one center group) all in center ch 3 space"

Now " skip 2 trc" which means next the next 2 trc stitches, then " 3 trc in next between next 2 trc,"

"1 group in last trc. " -- this means on the top of this stitch you will do 2 trc, ch-1, 2 trc.
