Good questions.

Here's my opinions...
The importance of protocols and standards is that they enable software
systems and processes to communicate predictibly with each other. Having
multiple systems follow a standard allows a new system to interact with all
participating systems with little or no extra cost.

A protocol is the back-and-forth information exchange between software
systems - typically a network based exchange of information.
A standard is the set of agreements and technical specifications that
software systems follow in order to participate. It often involves selecting
particular protocols for particular purposes.
