What are the exact behavior difference between Silent and NonInteractive? For me the documentation is unclear. If I advertise with SCCM should I word with Silent or keep NonInteractive?

Please look in Microsoft Word toolkit documentation file under heading titled "Toolkit Parameters". As updates are always being made to documentation, you can also get the latest version of the documentation by downloading everything from the "Source Code" tab of this site.

It is still unclear. With SCCM, if there are blocking apps will that window appear to the user or if the program will just close? What should be done to be sure the the user will be ask to close his program?

This is what the documentation says regarding NonInteractive:
NonInteractive = Very silent, i.e. no blocking apps. NonInteractive mode is automatically set if it is detected that the process is not user interactive.

Please test the different scenarios you are concerned about to see what they do.
