Need help on what to put between my drywall and a partywall that separates me and the townhouse next door. All info appreciated.

This can be more complicated than it sounds. Seldom will just insulation do the sound proofing you want. Sounds transmit thru solid objects better than air. This means that the studs will transmit sounds pretty well. There are products that isolate the drywall from the studs or you can actually build another wall separated from the main wall and insulate both. This would isolate the studs from direct contact and provide better sound proofing. Also might want to consider the sprayed in foam insulation that does a pretty good job of sound proofing
