I will start in the reverse order: A second messenger is a signal molecule that is being created upon receptor stimulation on the membrane. The idea is that a signal molecule binds a receptor extracellular which in return intracellular synthesis a secondary messenger which can then cause a physiological change. An example of an hydrophobic second messenger could be a phospholipids. Phospholipids are characterized by having an phosphate group at the hydrophilic end of the lipid which increases the solubility in water drastically due to the negative charge from the phosphate.
