German Past Tenses

I have two simple questions regarding the simple past and the haben/sein + participle past in German:
  1. Do the two differ at all in meaning?
  2. Which one is used more frequently in colloquial conversations? I've noticed that the simple past is used a lot in more formal texts.
Danke!
