What Linux terminal commands can help me gather information about all WiFi routers my laptop can detect?
I mean things like name, channel, encryption type etc.

You're looking for
iwlist. Ordinarily you would do something like
iwlist wlan0 scan
(Where wlan0 is the name of your wireless network interface.)
