On terminal, I type

ssh root@ipadress

How do I ssh into something if it is not the default port 22, in my case it is 222

You can use the -p option to choose a different port. So:

ssh -p 222 root@ipaddress

You can also look up help using the man (manual) command, like man ssh, to show help information, including usage, command line options, errors, etc. While in the man page, you can type / (the slash character) followed by any text (and Enter) to search for that within the manual.
