I would like to know what tween does in keyframe movements. I don't really see much difference when I apply it, is less smoother or is max smoother?

A high tween will smooth out the joins between keyframes. With no tweening it'll go from one keyframe to the next without any smoothing.

I can see where you might want a hard tween like a spaceship/jet banking hard and smooth like the spaceship out in space. I have noticed that when I scale at the same time I am moving (quad) I get unexpected results like it's moving backwards. I know I did not move the object backwards though.

That is the computer trying to figure out how to smooth out the movements. You can key frame the tween slider as you need it.
