what soil type do the majority of herb varieties prefer



I cannot really help you too much, other than to say that mediteranean herbs, such as as oregano & basil, need free draining soil.
I always struggle with coriander, which produces weedy plants that bolt!

Mint and lemon balm like shade and damp soil. Some, like fennel, are not fussy. What sort of soil do you have?
