Are there REst APIs to look at details of a Type like getTypeProperties(), getAspects(), getParentAssociations(),getChildAssocs()?
I beleave you mean this
Alfresco Content Services REST API Explorer
Sorry I was not clear. Let us say I want to get all properties and associations of type cm:content (I am at the type level and not at an instance level). Which Restful API should I use to get this information dynamically?
Do you refer to this ?

Yes. Thank you. Is there a comparable Restful API for doing this?
Well, the first option is in fact based on a webscript / REST service.
One last question: Is there a way to include inherited attributes, associations and aspects?
An alternative to using Alfresco native APIs for this is to use CMIS. For example, here are some Java examples that use CMIS to query for type definitions:
Working with Types - Apache Chemistry Samples
And with the CMIS browser binding you can query the dictionary service in a RESTful way. You can see an example request/response log by looking at the getTypeDefinition section in the CMIS specification document.
