    For a particular Hamiltonian H and potential V the Schrodinger equation is partial differential equation. It doesn't help solve other equations, it helps solve physical problems.

    One could argue that in fact other equations help solve the Schrodinger equation .....

    Provide more context. What equations do you expect the Schrodinger Eq
    to help you solve, ...

    The Schroedinger can be used for example for particles in potential wells, for example an electron in the potential of a nucleus.
    Depending on the potential, you can use different methods to solve the Schroedinger.

    This kind of question is pretty vague to answer. For example in my collection of books I have two introductory Quantum Mechanics texts with a total of nearly 900 pages between them, requiring some 4 or 5 college semesters of Math and Physics background to understand.

    I'm not trying to tell you not to post questions on these topics, but I would suggest you do some reading (there are plenty of "layman" books out there) and start asking more specific questions. These questions would simply take too long to answer properly.
