Quick releases are for remote hoses usually, they allow you to pop the hose on and off easily.

ASA with an on/off is just something you can screw your tank into and control whether air flows or not

Angle drops usually mount the tank at an angle, usually like a 15 degree angle or so for comfort

S rails are just normal rails pretty much that you can slide your ASA on to increase/decrease the length but they aren't much different from a normal rail.

the asa mounts to the rail. most guns have a rail already milled into the bottom of the gripframe, so a rail is not needed. some guns just use 2 screws to hold the asa to the frame.
