There isn't a recovery "app", It's just a Recovery, There are plenty of good Recoverys like : TWRP,4ext or CWM.
I Use CWM since i like that the most.

Nandroid is a full backup of the partitions on your device’s NAND flash (NAND actually stands for NOT AND,which in simple terms means an electronic gate). Basically a backup of your phones hard drive if you will... The Nandroid backup is a snapshot of your device (it means everything on your phone – your apps, data, your current ROM and even the kernel is backed up) at the time you do the back up. If you restore the back up, it changes your phone BACK to that state. You will need clockworkmod (CWM). So make sure prior to this you have CWM on your device.

I also prefer CWM especially for backing up phone encase of bricking phone when trying to install new roms in this case it comes in handy though the others are also great but personally haven't tried them

Do you mean you don't have a Custom recovery? If yes : It depends on each phone, I don't really know much about the question, since i never had a bricked phone without a Custom recovery.
I think it's possible to Unbrick a Bricked phone without Customr recovery just search the internet and something will eventually pop up.

The kernel is basically the core of your Operating system.
Android devices use the Linux kernel, but it's not the exact same kernel other Linux-based operating systems use. There's a lot of Android specific code built in, and Google's Android kernel maintainers have their work cut out for them. OEMs have to contribute as well, because they need to develop hardware drivers for the parts they're using for the kernel version they're using. This is why it takes a while for independent Android developers and hackers to port new versions to older devices and get everything working. Drivers written to work with the Gingerbread kernel on a phone won't necessarily work with the Ice Cream Sandwich kernel. And that's important, because one of the kernel's main functions is to control the hardware. It's a whole lot of source code, with more options while building it than you can imagine, but in the end it's just the intermediary between the hardware and the software.
