A good book that really helped me when i changed my own embouchure was 'A Physical Approach to Elementary Brass Playing' by Claude Gordon. It's a brilliant lesson by lesson book that builds up the fundamentals right from the beginning and helps you to understand how things work.

Embouchure means altering the shape of the mouth to change the pitch or timbre.

I throat sing, play the mini-harmonica hands-free and play the nose whistle. All of these instruments/techniques are entirely dependent on mouth shape. I've messed with the bugle, which also is 100% mouth shape dependent, but it's clearly not my instrument, as my dogs remind me whenever I try to play!

Oh, we'll need a standard way of marking test questions vs information seeking questions!!!!

I suspected from the spam link originally posted, that the OP doesn't actually know the bell of a horn from its mouthpiece. I was just in a "playful" mood!

You're probably right!
