Device tree's contain the configuration files and settings files for your device, while vendor tree's contain proprietary binary blobs such as graphics, and other sensors. Vendor tree's are usually made for specific devices but there are some additional vendor tree's that are common to certain devices that share the same chipset and other features. The best way to learn about vendor and device tree's is to take a look at a good example of a device tree and a good example of a vendor tree, as well as a good example of a vendor wide common tree. Let me know if you still have questions I'll be happy to help you out.

You can try using that tree for compiling JB, you may get a compile error which you may have to fix but test it and it find out. Overall it should work for you, somethings may break but it should work.
