It is not clear to me what's the difference between approved users and registered and email validated users. Should I approve a user for him to be able to post? Thanks

Approving users is a manual action by the admin/moderator. Whereas email confirmation is an action by the user themselves to prove their email address is valid.

It's up to you what you do, but I think most sites would not want to use manual approval since its time consuming. It's useful if you want to restrict who can register, or as a temporary measure of you get hit by spam sign ups.
Ok so a user who has not been approved is sort of in the same state than a user who wouln't have confirmed his email, is it?
Yes that's correct.
