a vMotion is the Live Migration of a virtual machine from one host to another host compute with zero downtime.

a Storage vMotion is the Live Migration of a virtual machine from one datastore to another datastore (storage) with zero downtime.

Both of these functions are performed by a HUMAN using the Migrate function in vCenter Server.

does DRS plays a part in vmotion?

These functions are performed by the DRS feature (if licensed) Distributed Resourced Scheduler.

If a virtual machine requests CPU and Memory resource in a Cluster with DRS enabled, DRS will automatically move the VM to another host (if enabled).

If a virtual machine requests STORAGE resource in a Cluster with SDRS enabled, SDRS will automatically move the VM to another datastore (if enabled).

how do i deploy ovf template is it same as creating vm template?

Select Deploy OVF - browse to the OVF and Import it, follow the wizard.

It is not the same as creating a template.
