    I found a keyword with 200,000 exact match results, but the Local U.S. results are 6,600. I don't really know how google works, will I be able to rank for the term from another country, or if I rank 1st in the U.S. should I only expect the 6,600 type of traffic?

    It really depends...

    6,600 Would be how much US traffic your site would get. Now, it's possible to rank for long tail keywords at the same time so you could end up getting more than that.

    As for what country you should go after it really depends switch the location in keyword external and see what will yield the best results for your type of offer.
