12…Rfe8 difference

QUESTION 7: In this position, Black played 12…Rfe8 earlier, and thus the rook is on a8 now, compared to f8 in the first 2 diagrams. How can White use this fact to his advantage? QUESTION 8: If White plays 18.Nc3 c6, why is it to Black’s advantage that the rook is on a8 here (compared to f8)?
