RM and RP are best used together.  That said, in our shop we only use RP. RP is a lower-level utility, it basically allows you to bring a LUN back to a specified point in time.  A LUN can be thought of as similar to a disk partition although of course they are not the same thing.  A single server often has more than one LUN, and a single application can span multiple servers.  So while RP is a great tool, it doesn't really address servers or applications, just LUNS. You have to figure out the rest yourself.

RM can use the facilities of RP and provides you with more sophisticated capabilities.  It is harder to set up, especially agents, but it can do a lot more for you, and in a more automated way.  You can create various kinds of replicas and run them automatically
and make one a prereq for another, etc.  This allows you to make replicas that reflect an entire server or group of servers.

I can't give you the EMC documents because they are copyright but if you google "Recover Point vs. Replication Manager" You'll get a lot of good info including pdf from EMC.
