Inside my vagina, on the side in the "folds" kind of, there is a little hardish nub thing. That's how they describe the cervix, but isn't supposed to be at the "end" of the vagina? What is it?

The cervix is at the end of the vagina/at the mouth of the uterus. If you're feeling this lump within the folds of your labia, this is definitely not your cervix. Unfortunately though, we can't tell you what it is since we can't see it. Your best bet for that would be to go see your GP or your GYN and ask her/him to take a look.
