Its sort of an unofficial rule, designed to make certain types of champs go to certain places during the game, Pretty much, people who are top ranked do this, community must do the same.

Thus the meta is born.

Meta is what the community currently is doing so to speak.

The Current Meta is going 1 top, 1 jungle 1 mid and 2 bot. usually the bruisher / off-tank is top so is the jungler, the one going mid is ap carry, and the bot lane consists of a support and an ad carry.

the meta one day might change to 1 top, 1 mid, 1 bot and 2 jungle.... who knows,

Meta is a word that refers to the philosophical level above the subject itself. The "metagame" is pretty much "the game of playing the game." It's a collection of strategies that are accepted as strong ways of playing the game.

The game itself is simply "destroy the nexus," and any way you can accomplish that will win you the game. The metagame is "what is the best way to destroy the nexus," and if the answer to that can be found, then theoretically, you can never be beaten by an alternate strategy.

But what all AD carries? what about AP

Metagame is merely where each champion goes, what each champion's main role is, and a basic playstyle. Currently it's 1 tanky top, 1 tanky AoE jungler who is effective at counter-jungling, 1 burst caster mid (typically AP) in order to control dragon/blue, and a support/AD bottom to ensure the carry gets farmed and can help maintain dragon control.
