Toplevel vs Open vs start using

I have used 3 different methods to "Open" a stack.
Just to open a stack and draw a window.
for opening a library file to get at it's functions and scripts.
First I load a stack into a variable and then use toplevel and hide it.
I use this to open stacks that I use to store data in custom properties.
I am not clear on the distinctions here. They all show up in the
application browser ( or Constellations Object Gadget). I have lots of
questions but these will have to do.
Is a stack opened by "start using" just loaded into Memory but not opened?
Should I always call "Stop using" right after I am done with start using?
Does "toplevel" do the same thing as "Open"
Can I open stack invisibly?
