Maybe you should read the book "Design Patterns" from Erich Gamma and
the rest of "the gang of four". (A.T.Hofkamp, mentioning its
terminology, got me thinking.) You ask complicated questions that
normal newbies don't ask, so you should maybe read an advanced book.
The book's idea is: There are certain problems in programming that
appear frequently (called "design patterns" in the book). These
problems can be categorized, and there exist well working solutions
for these probelms. Additionally, when programmers adopt a common
terminology for those problems, it will be more easy to talk about
One of those patterns is "factory" which A.T mentioned.
