Lacp is link aggregation to connect more than one wire to another switch (or a server). This will not increase the speed of one connection but it will give you more overall speed if the computer has multiple connections.
Flow control is used when you have megabit stuff on a gigabit network, the switch can pause frames so as not to go too fast. If turning this off doesn't cause problems, I usually leave it off. It can cause problems when on sometimes. But in your environment you may need it on, there is no rule here.

flow control when enabled listens for and sends pause frames to slow down traffic
