hi waheed,

a polygon is good when you have irregulary shaped planes
of copper.  gerber files are what you finally knock out
when you are ready to get a board made.  you walk thru
the file/cam manager and then F9 to generate them.  you
send these to the board shop to get the board made, along
with the NC drill file, too.

i don't know about the pick and place stuff.

good luck, waheed.  i've been using protel on and off for
two years and i'm still learning stuff.
