In the forum I am given the option of Ask a Question or New Discussion. Selecting either one provides a form that offers the same Categories and and sections to complete. I am not sure why I would do one or the other...

Questions on the other hand are looking for a specific question and the asker can mark the best answer. They are posted the same but have different goals.
As far as who can answer them, anyone can including Onshape employees. We enabled it to see what people thought of the two options.
If it is a question, it will either say 'question', 'answered', or 'accepted answer' below it on the main forum page
If it doesn't have any of these, it is a discussion, unless you are in the improvement requests section of the forum
