Would that be regular cucumbers or English cucumbers?

You can use any type of cucumber.

She probably means what you called 'regular' cucumbers (about 6 to 8 inches) because you don't very often see the foot-long English cucumbers in the US, at least not where I come from LOL!

Well then that would apply to pickling cucumbers also. You'd probably have to adjust it no matter what type you used, by judging how much liquid you have as to how many slices of cucumber, etc.
