Those are all for JBing, there's also Limera1n, and created by different team / people. They use the same exploit, and the end result, the iPhone is JB with Cydia installed. Generally, the prefer tools are created by Dev Team (Redsnow & Pwnagetool) since they are the most stable.
After phone is JB, to unlock, install Ultrasn0w (Dev Team) from Cydia.

The sources you need for the unlock are already pre-installed in cydia once you jailbreak.
Open cydia, go to the manage tab, then click on sources, then look for the source titled repo666.ultrasn0w.com, click on it and install. BAM unlocked.

The differences between the Jailbreaks are the exploit. Think of it as a hidden door someone found. Some use an exploit at the boot level and require you to put the phone into DFU mode and install that way. Some are software based and can be installed by a simple touch of a icon.
Where ever they find one of these hidden doors on a particular device running a particular firmware is when a jailbreak is released...
