post your code on what you need explanation on?
i think that
$obj = new Object();
is how you call a method inside an object. On the other hand:
$obj = Object::some_method();
is how you call a method from "outside" an object.
The difference is that in the 2nd example, the method is static. meaning you dont have to create an object to use it.
Generally it doesnt make a difference.

depends.. sometimes functions need objects, sometimes they dont.. e.g. if you had a validation class you might do
$message = $Class::validate_email($email) // you dont need to create an object!
