When you do a nadroid backup it backing up EVERYTHING, system apps, user apps and app data which is in the browser case it's your browser settings and local book mark,.Text msg, call log, contacts etc.. are included. The second question, I don't understand what you're asking??? If you provide the O/S version and what rom I may able to help you better.

If you worry about your text/contacts/mms/call log and dophin data, then the best backup app is called My backup or My backup root (if you rooted). Once installed, click on new backup, select data backup, now you see a list including sms,txt,mms,contact etc.. just put a check mark on what ever you want to backup then hit go. Do the same for application, just select application instead of data. During the restore, you can select what data or what app you want to restore.
Edit: If you want to backup/restore system apps, your phone needed root and you need My backup root or it won't work.

are you trying to back up your mms, calls, data, etc or are you trying to root and flash roms? if you want to back up your data, i use rom toolbox pro for all in one app. if you want to have a recovery for your roms incase you brick and need to flash your backups use recoveries like cwm or twrp. I personally use Philz touch which is great.
