Because every time I think "oh, I'd like to help this person by cleansing that effect," nothing happens.

Please help me :(

Cleanse removes Poison and Diseases effects.
in addition, if you're Holy, it can also remove Magic effects.

But what counts as a magic effect? Can it remove mind control? Charm? Stun? Silence?

Magic effects are the ones with blue frames around the debuffs, and say "magic" in the top right of the tooltip.

Mind control, charm, and non-physical stuns and silences are magic effects.

If it's a red boxed debuff, you cannot cleanse it. Also paladins cannot de-curse like Druids and Mages.

It's not quite that simple. There are physical fears and magical stuns. For example, Fear and Psychic Scream are magic, so they can be dispelled with Cleanse. However, Intimidating Shout is physical, so it cannot be. Similarly, Hammer of Justice is a magic stun, so it can be dispelled with Cleanse, but Cheap Shot is physical, so it can't.

Death Knight DoT's, Rogue poisons and a few Shadow Priest/Warlock spells that are classified as a Disease rather than a Curse such as Devouring Plague. Next patch our utility is getting a buff with Hand of Sacrifice removing all magic effects from the target.

Learn all the abilities if you really want to know. Honestly the only real way.

The color around the edge of the debuff is generally an easy way to tell. Poisons are green, magic debuffs are blue, curses are purple; for some reason I'm not sure offhand what color diseases are, but I can recognize it quickly in-game.

I want to say diseases are yellow but I can't say for sure without checking it.

It's not immunity to stuns, it's immunity to silences and interrupts.
