In the armory are some (comic book style) commanders, in their description it says they have a "specialization" for a T10 ship.

What are the specializations? Can't find any additional info anywhere.

I think you're talking about the "Rogue Wave" event commanders in the Armory.  Like this one:

His specialization is that he's already trained for Tier X French Destroyer "Kleber."  Ivan the Terrible is already trained for Tier X RU DD "Grozovoi."

 

The ones with ribbons on the bottom right of their portrait have special, enhanced traits to them.

The armory doesn't tell you what those enhanced traits are, so here's a link so you can read up on what those are: https://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Unique_Commanders

Yes that's what I'm referring too. Do these commanders have improved skills when you place them in the listed ship? For your example above for Kleber, does that mean they have extra fire chance or improved adrenaline rush etc when they are in that ship?

No.  It just means you can drop the commander in the Kleber without any retraining.

Ok they should really remove the word special from the description.

I agree, they should have a different name than the commanders with specific skills.

They are special since they are all ready for a particular tier 10 ship when others are specialized for one nations tier one ship. I believe the ones with the stripe are referred to as unique commanders due to their unique captain skills boosts.

"Specialization" refers to the ship a commander is assigned to...it always has in this game...at least since open beta 4 years ago.

But it's never "special"...it's always "specialization".

It costs doubloons/elite commander XP/(sometimes massive) grinding to change a commanders specialization so it's good (if you have the ship in question) to get 1 specifically specified for a high tier ship so you don't have to grind 1 from 1 point.

It would be less confusing if the wording was something like, "Trained for Tier-10 Kleber."

I think he's asking, what's the specialization...what can they do or have for these dd's that other captains don't. And yes you do have to retrain these captains, if you drop them in from another ship.

It's also worth noting that its possible to have multiples of these event commanders. I'm using them to put 10 point commanders in all my USN CLs for instance.

They do need retrained from being Gearing captains, but that's what premium ships are for :)
