there is very little difference between "select" and "target". Both can be negated by target negation, and don't affect cards that say "cannot be targeted by card effs". The primary difference is when the word is used. "Target" is normally used when the effect designates one card, while "select" means the effect designates multiple cards. Im sure there are some exceptons to these rules, becase konami is konami, but for the most part this is the ruling.
