DAPP/Smart Contract confusion.

Can DAPPs/Smart Contracts be used to make a contracts for sending and receiving actual Ethereum or only for some made up value like votes, or coin that only has meaning within the context of the contract?

And if someone wanted to make an application that sent and received actual Ethereum like Coinbase does for example do I use an API for that? Or following my first question just make a DAPP?

    Any smart contract can send Ether. A contract can only receive if programmed to allow it.

    The Ethereum program you download and run to talk to the network has an API built into it. You can write your own javascript and call the API using a library called web3.
