    HAN allows for various tools (like installing backups of PS1,PS2, PSP, and PS3 games) to be used on previously unhackable PS3 hardware versions (some slims/super slims). CFW is not involved to do the things HAN does, however, if you have a CFW capable ps3 it'd probably be better to install cfw.

    1.The diffrence is han allows ofw to run backups and xmb mods (such as coldboot and custom waves) without cfw installation.Its mainly for ps3's that are 3000 or superslims.However han will not allow homebrew or online mod menus since you cant run custom eboots on ofw and ccapi is homebrew based so no infectable mod menus either.

    2.No but you dont need han if you are on a fat or 2000 slim that has a base firmware of 3.56 or lower.

    If you are unsure of what you can do with your ps3,go to http://ps3xploit.com/#,go to flash writer and download minVer pup which is a modified pup that will tell you what firmware your console shiped with.

    If it shipped with 3.56 or lower then you can install cfw.If its 3.57 and above you go for han.
