I'm looking to buy a used car and am a bit confused on whether they have timing belts or chains. Did the corollas have belts up till 1997 and then go to timing chains??

Correct, starting with the 1998 model year (8th generation Corolla) - they switched to a new engine family (ZZ series instead of the A-series) which implemented timing chains instead of a timing belt.
