I would like to know if exits some software or guide list I don't know the correct term, that I can access by terminal and inform me all about that specifies port.

Exemple: I using nmap and I would like to know What is port 680/tcp, but I don't want to access this information by browser, I want to use the terminal, like root@root:/home# guide tcp 680 that would return me the information.. Please that command is unrealistic!

lsof (you may have to sudo apt-get install lsof) will show you which process has port 680 open, thusly:

sudo lsof -i tcp:680

On my system (and looking at port 22, because I have nothing listening to port 680) the result is:

$ sudo lsof -i tcp:22
COMMAND  PID USER   FD   TYPE DEVICE SIZE/OFF NODE NAME
sshd    4063 root    3u  IPv4  20684      0t0  TCP *:ssh (LISTEN)
sshd    4063 root    4u  IPv6  20686      0t0  TCP *:ssh (LISTEN)

Be sure to read man lsof (in general, whenever some "helpful" stranger tells you to sudo *anything*, be sure to read man *anything*).
