Is this the only document where I can read the checklists for Apollo lunar landing? They look more sidenotes than real checklists, and they contain hundreds of acronyms; I would expect instead a "checklist book" with "acronyms appendix", but can't find it.

timeline with checklists

I see some cover pages of checklist books, but not for Lunar Module landing, and anyway all on auction on Sotheby's...

That is the checklist. It's called the LM Timeline Book. This is the corresponding page from Apollo 13.

Acronym lists are not typically included in NASA human spaceflight checklists. The users are expected to know the acronyms.

Thanks to the very useful answer from @Organic Marble, I was able to locate all the checklists (links are in his answer); here is a comparison between the 6 touchdown/stay/nostay checklists:

Note: I think there is a typo in Apollo 14 checklist: the number in brackets usually indicates the number of identical controls to operate; sometimes they wrote "(2)", other times "(both)", but for Apollo 14 we see "(9" without closing bracket, possibly an error in copying the "(2)" from a poorly readable copy of timeline book:
