Free Doom is basically a watered down version of Doom. I believe it was recreated with the doom engine(which is open source) so they wouldn't run into copyright issues, with official Doom(copyrighted). So basically the Doom Engine is not protected and the Doom game is.

Addons are mods that people have created that run off the Doom game and Doom2. Some have different levels, some have different enemies, and some have both.
Examples: 007 Golden Eye 64 mod, Lego Enemies, Star Wars enemies, ect.
They have to be a single mod that run off of Doom.wad or Doom2.wad. Addons are placed in /.rockbox/doom/addons

wad is what the game and addons are saved as(the file type)
EXAMPLE:
doom.wad - which is the game
goldeneye.wad - which would be the mod(addon)

Freedoom is just a doom game that somebody made so you could play doom for free.
