I'm not familiar with a cheatsheet myself (but there may be one
somewhere), but I have some information about your current problem.

PostgreSQL doesn't have the functionality to change a connection from
one database to another with a simple command.   The client app has to
drop the connection and open a new connection to the other database.

However, you can achieve similar functionality to this by using
multiple schemas in a single database.  Then to switch focus from one
schema to another you would use "SET search_path = " <name of schema>.
