Question [Q] Wireless Peripherals and Gaming Controllers

I would like to know a few things about android peripherals:

I currently own a Samsung Galaxy Trend Plus and I'm about to buy a gaming controller for it.
First question:

What's the difference between 2.4 Ghz Wireless Connection and Bluetooth? I mean, can you use a 2.4 Ghz PS3 Controller on Android, or no?
2nd Question:

Is there any possible way of using a WiiMote Plus with this device? I know that Samsung changed the Bluetooth Stack Drivers, but I also saw a guy on YouTube connecting a WiiMote to Samsung Galaxy with no problem!

the wiimote, with the app of course should work with any phone that has bluetooth. i heard it does not work on Kitkat yet and possibly jellybean 4.3.
"Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat: 'we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.'
"How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice.
"You must be,' said the Cat, 'or you wouldn't have come here."

Like I said in my above post, Samsung replaced the stock andoid Bluetooth drivers in Touchwiz with their drivers!
For this reason the WiiController app and other similar ones do not work on it.
