as it is stated in the tutorial, real apps use the Face abstraction provided by ndn-cxx, while custom apps are designed to follow the NS-3 principles more closely (e.g., the ones in the /apps folder).

This is a research question that has to do with whether you need some kind of support from the network in terms of dealing with Interest and Data packets. An application can generate requests for data (consumer) and respond to requests with Data (producer), while a forwarding strategy can decide on what to do with forwarded Interests and returned Data packets across the network.
