Just using pokes at mid range or some other things ? I heard a lot this term but it seems even most people using this word don't know what it is.
And please, don't give me the link to the Footsie's guide.

To be honest, i already read all chapters and if i'm right here, footsies include a lot of things on fighting games.
Things like spacing, baiting, throwing, whiff punish, corner pressing, jumping's situations etc... it's so huge, not just the ground game damn.
You can't ask for well-thought-out changes off day 1, week 1, or mostly even month 1 play...and that's when the game is out and everyone's in the lab.-Mike_ZIf there's anything we do best, it's breaking games and then making everyone suffer with all the cheapness.-PersiaXOIf you're waiting for a fair & balanced game you're wasting your time.

Poking and spacing, I'd say SFXT is a good game to learn footsies.

Initially that may be the case, but really, SFxT is more about hit confirming than footsies. Throw out any poke, option-select it into the next higher attack button, hit confirm into target combo.
Better idea would be to play SF4 and pick a fundamentally rooted character: Ryu, Guile, Chun, Balrog, etc.

You would think, but the higher reward to a well placed poke in XT as you described is much more conducive to learning than some minimal damage in 4.
A good footsie game is rewarded 5 fold in xtekken and less wakeup guessing due to roll mean more chances at landing said footsies.

I believe the term came about because, back in the day, you'd see players fishing for hits of crouching shorts or forwards, trying to get a hit confirm or a counterpoke.

"back in the day" hit confirms off crouching shorts and forwards didnt exist

Hit confirms off cr.shorts and cr.forwards have existed since SF2. They existed in the Alpha series, and they existed in 3s.

you cannot confirm a cr.forward in SF2 or the Alphas. the cancel window simply isn't big enough. yeah there are some confirms off cr.shorts in SF2 but hardly as widespread as they would become in later games.
