Default ADB Sideload Question

With ADB sideload, you can flash not only roms but also things like GAPPS right? Instead of using : adb sideload rom.zip : to flash the gapps you can just do : adb sideload gapps.zip :, right?

you can flash any recovery file by adb sideload or by adb push (recommended)
and fastboot command only works in fastboot mode and you cannot flash ROM on fastboot mode
