There are many kinds of filters. A Neutral Density filter is used to darken the scene, for certain effects. It's useful for sure, but not the very first filter I'd expect someone to get.
Also note that 77mm diameter is more common on big "pro" lenses than narrower consumer-grade zooms. (You can adapt a larger filter to a smaller lens, but still, don't carry lumpier gear than you will use.)

People who use a filter to protect their lenses choose transparent "UV" or "skylight" filters. My favorite filter is a polarizer: it really cuts the glare on sunny days or off shiny objects (including water) without damaging the image. In a pinch, it can also work as a (non-variable) neutral density filter.

tl;dr: Different filters for different effects. When in doubt, go to your local camera store.

Tiffen filters are cheap. If you want quality stuff, go for B&W (German) or Hoya (Japan).

Does this go well with the sigma 30mm f 1.4? it has a 52mm thread but is it viable to use a step up adaper?

While this is beneficial for photography, it's a must have for DSLR videography if you're looking to shoot with a shallow depth of field. That's assuming you have a lens that's fast enough. If your lens accepts a 77mm filter, it probably is.

You are better off with a set of filters or if doing landscape a filter holder and square filters, with these types you will sometimes get a color shift. It's just the nature of the two polarizing elements, if not perfectly aligned will cause this. The very very expensive filters have less of this. Also with stacked rotating filters such as this you may bump into vignetting problems at wide angles.

I am new to photography. In which way does the quality stuff perform better than the cheap filters?

The light transmission of good quality filters like B+W, etc is superior to cheap filters from companies like Tiffen. Lower quality filters will add a color cast.
