The documentation outlines importing. https://help.jabref.org/en/#importexport. The home page also lets you know which files can be imported directly, http://www.jabref.org/ - RIS, Medline/Pubmed (xml), Refer/Endnote, INSPEC, BibTeXML, CSA, ISI Web of Science, SilverPlatter, Scifinder, OVID, Biblioscape, Sixpack, JStor, and RIS.

What is BibTex and how it differs from normal .txt, .doc and .docx format?

I hope this helps with your general inquiry. To get more detailed answers, it will be best to focus a new question on just one item. With a question like, "How to import? or "How to create a file?", it will best to show the work you have already tried and explain the errors you have encountered.
