If a recipe doesn't specify the kind of onion, then it means they are calling for yellow onions. White onions. White onions are slightly milder in flavor and are typically used in Mexican cooking

It just depends on what you are cooking. My usual "go to" onion falls in the "sweet" category; Vidalia, Maui, Walla Walla. Otherwise turn to the common brown (Spanish) onion as they are less expensive.

Ditto what WileyP says. Also, sauteing them or caramelizing onions can make them sweeter and less sharp.
