I am trying to retrieve some WMS layers from geoserver so that I can display them in leaflet and I need to populate a URL field and I noticed that many of the layers that I opened up in openlayers had "GetMap&layers" vs examples that were successful with "GetFeatureInfo&Layers" when being served via URL.

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, see the FAQ.
GetMap-Retrieves a map image for a specified area and content
GetFeatureInfo (optional)-Retrieves the underlying data, including geometry and attribute values, for a pixel location on a map
