I am a student doing research on electroplating. and I'm trying to find information on what metals can be plated and what metals can be plated on to another.

That question has been asked before. Use the search engine at this site to find previous references. Research is searching for answers, not asking someone else what they think. I am 100%positive that some library in your large city has one or several books on electroplating. It would take a book to answer your question, not just a few sentences.

A short list of metals that can be plated obviously includes common ones like brass, cadmium, chrome, copper, gold, nickel, rhodium, silver, and zinc. Since rocks and orchids can be plated onto, so can all metals be plated onto.
