InfoPath vs. Word & Excel

Good afternoon,
     I have done a little reading about InfoPath, and it sounds like one can create an InfoPath form, and then then email it to someone.  Is that correct, can I create a form, mail it to a focal, then they can fill it out, and mail it back to me, and it will still have the data in it?
     Is the only difference between from creating a form in Word and In InfoPath the ability to connect the InfoPath file to another data source to be uploaded?  I just copied a form from a website into Word via copy\paste, and the drop-down boxes actually work in the Excel file too, and have the same data in them as was in the website.
     This is what I was trying to do with InfoPath, but I'm still not sure that an InfoPath form will store the data in it after the focals enter the data to email it back to me.  I would actually love to know how to create the form I just created in Word using cut and paste from a website.  As much help as you can give me will be especially appreciated, thanks, Jon

What are the advantages of using InfoPath vs Word or Excel?  Thanks again,
