The power heads usually just create streams of water. Wavemakers make ripples like a boats rudder, which creates waves. Also, wavemakers can be hooked up to a control panel to become even more natural.

Yes it would. They spread the flow around the tank much more evenly, thus getting rid of dead spots.
