As far as I know that's the only difference. You could call them and ask for sure though, they have great customer support.

I honestly have not tried the fuel economy tune. I would bet not much though, maybe 1 or 2 at most. I have only used 91 performance, 93 performance, and tow. I have it on 93 performance normally, and change to tow when towing. I noticed a very small increase in mpg with the 93 tune, very little though.

when you run the dfferent octane tunes, do you use that octane in your truck or do you just fill it with 87? if not, what would happen if you did do this?

You have to run the minimum octane required for the tune else risk damage to the engine. On the 93 tune I run 93, if I run a lower octane it will ping/detonate and can cause damage especially over time and at higher rpm's and higher loads. If you run the 91 tune, you must use AT LEAST 91 octane. Higher is ok, lower is not ok.

I think they say to use 93 with tow tune. It doesn't give any huge improvement in mpg but it pulls so much better it is worth it IMO. Also, some people will use the 87 performance tune with 91 or 93 octane and tow on that, and that works out well.
