I just read the rules, but I didn't see them mentioning either rack or pool. On most pictures of the game those terms are printed on the board though. Can someone clarify what these terms mean and how they play?

An older ruleset used a common 'rack' and 'pool' as described here. In the newer rules, each player just has their own 'hand' of letters.

And is your hand open information? Can your opponent see what you're holding?

Yes. Both hands are open. You must often to adapt your strategy according to opponent's letters.
