Looking to do a type of cartoony "boing" - where a character suddenly rushes into position and stops... and their body quickly sways/subsides back and forth. Best way for me to describe it, I guess. Hope the 'sound effect' term used visualizes what I'm trying to do... Is there a simple effect that can be used... Was gonna do it manually, but didn't know a term in case there may be an effect or so to get things going...

Try AE's Puppet tool on the subject. I'll assume the subject is isolated from the background on its own layer. Don't use the subject on a background: it won't work.

It will help A LOT to have the precise sound effect you want: then you can animate to it.

There's a script called Ease and Wizz which will give you a lot of what you're looking to do without the tedious hand keyframing:
