I'm wanting to have the ability to pour a stout with the flowing nitrogen head out of my kegerator.

I see two different types of faucets that might do this. The stout faucet and a creamer faucet.

What's the practical difference besides price? I understand that they work differently (not understanding how), but do you get the same results?

With a Stout faucet you will need to have a nitrogen tank/regulator to carb and serve it. Those faucets force the beer over a disc that releases the nitrogen out of the been and gives you a thick creamy head. The creamer faucets can be used with CO2 and just fluff your beer with air.
