Xenapp websites is a webpage for humans.
Xenapp services site is the configuration/api page for the software-client.
you need only one ... depend, which interface you wish to use.

PNagent plugin/ PNagent are names for the old citrix clients.
Now named "citrix receiver"

If you would like to go for internet option to launch the application through citrix then go for  XenApp Web sites, if its just you are looking for internal only then you can go for  Xenapp services sites and same can access through citrix receiver plugin

Do we need to configure both do configure a web Interface in a farm? Its up to you requirement

What is PNagent site / PNagent plugin/ PNagent? As dkotte mention PNA agent are old clients its better to go with citrix receiver.

Thanks Dkotte and Sekar.

So, no agent requires for Xenapp websites.
Agent require for Xenapp services site which is known as PNagent.

PNAgent is an older version of Receiver (just comparing to get better understanding)

Please correct if I am wrong.

with citrix-webinterface you need to install a client (PNAgent/Receiver) also.

if you use the full receicer (my recommendation) the receiver contacts the store and present the app-icons to start.

if you wish to start the app from webpage only, you can use the citrix-client without own frontend.
With PNAgent there was a version without own frontend (app-start done from web-page)
the current receiver can be installed without frontend by install-parameter also.

with storefront you may use the "receiver for HTML5".
then the only you need at client side is a HTML5 aware browser. (not very fast and missing some features ... but usable)
