2. If your sending information (Outbound) you need to enable api using remote site settings, refer below link :

3. The Basic use case for REST v/s SOAP is whenever you need to play with large amount of data you are going to use SOAP API and when ever there is less data to play you need REST API, Also SOAP is a protocol which come's first and REST is an architecture which help's for sharing information.
