I'm not an expert at either systems, but the answer is, it depends.
1. apache is a command line service/server. you start it with the command "service apache2 start" and its configured through various text .conf files. I suggest reading up on apache.
2. tor if installed from synaptic installs a command line service/client. there is no desktop menu entry. You can check out the Tor project for info on the tor-browser package, which they distribute themselves as a tarball and you would install outside the usual package management system.
