Those, TMK, are not one in the same. IeA is an Application, whereas IeB is a document. Think of it like this:  IeA is an instance of IE. This instance has a member called "Document". This is what IeB would point to.

With IeB, you can interact with the html of the page you are viewing, but not with the application hosting the page. How did leB get assigned?

Sorry, what do you mean by 'background object'? Since you have window's hWnd you can do whatever you want with it using API:
ShowWindow with SW_HIDE,SW_MINIMIZE etc (see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms633548(v=vs.85).aspx)

Close window using SendMessage/PostMessage with WM_SYSCOMMAND+SC_CLOSE or with  WM_CLOSE

Enum it's children or GetParent
etc.
