A flat file is just any ordinary file with text in it: a .txt file, a .csv fiel and so on. If you open them, you can read them.

A raw file is essentially a dump of your data in SSIS to the file system. This is done in a proprietary binary format, so you can't read them yourself. This is used for quickly reading/writing data between different stages in the ETL.
