Delay is basically an echo where as flanger is just a modulation with like a filter i think. I do no that it's just a modulation effect. Modulation just brings the pitch up and down at various speeds.

It's for panning the signal.

Basically, you take two amps, and hook one into each input. You set the pedal to Gate (Pan), and the sound bounces from amp to amp.

How do you say "I'm okay" to an answering machine?

Here is the main difference between the two.
A delay repeats a section of audio multiple time at diminishing volumes. This causes an echo effect.
A flanger on the other hand takes the singal, copies it, and plays it over top with a very slight delay in time. This causes a wooshing effect, comparable to a phaser.

The reason that there are 2 jacks is because these pedals can produce a stereo effect (a slightly diffrent sound in each ear). Haveing 2 input jacks can preserve this from other pedals and output it though the other 2 jacks.
