Is there a list somewhere where I can see which gases are/not soluble in water?

umm for gases just know that they are soluble with low temperature and high pressure. you don't need to know specific solubilities.

i think ammonia is soluble in water, and i think carbon dioxide, but im never sure. i dont think hydrogen is very soluble in water. can someone back me up or prove me wrong? thanks.

CO2 is certainly not soluble in anything

whats it mean for a gas to be soluble in water?
and isnt like soda carbonated with CO2? so does that mean its soluble in something

Carbonated beverages do have CO2 dissolved in them -- but they are kept at high pressure (remember that pssfft sound you hear when opening one?). In its dissolved form, CO2 makes carbonic acid. Slight solubility of CO2 under standard conditions does occur, and leads to the formation of caves among other things.

HCl is soluble in water. ;-P
