@paeiz Katakana is usually used for loanwords—not always, just “usually”. In other words, if you see a word written in Katakana it’s *probably* a loanword.
You can write everything in hiragana, but since spaces aren’t used between words, that would make reading strenuous to your eyes and brain. That’s why people will write a word in kanji or a combination of kanji and hiragana to make it easier to read. In fact, the combination (including katakana) inside a text is what makes it easier for people to speed read.
Anyway, the more you read the more you get used to it 🙂
