I learned that some waves travel trough liquids and solids, then there are others that travel trough solids. Are there any waves that travel trough plasma?

Yep. You can see standing waves in all sorts of sparks and arcs and discharges.

Can you be more specific, or at least give me some illustrations?

If you google "sound waves in plasmas" you will get a load of hits. Many of them are quite 'hard' but I'm sure you can find something of an appropriate level - (Goldilox level)
I have no idea what level you are aiming at so you will be more likely to get what you want with dear ol' Google.
