you're asking a lot but here's my 2 cents

basically unix started out as a monolithic model- one giant block of code that was compiled and loaded at boot to provide all functionality

later on they got the idea to add support for hardware/functionality that wasnt loaded at boot i.e. not in the giant codeblock

for this they invented modules which are basically bunches of code loaded at runtime

i'll think you'll be hard pressed trying to find a kernel these days w/o support for modules
