  1. I think they're talking about the implied "to be" such as in "Mwen kontan" instead of "Mwen se kontan".

    I believe the general answer is that that when it's a noun-adjective combo it's usually an implicit "to be" and when it's a noun-noun combo it's usually explicit such as "Mwen se yon dokte" - I am a doctor.
