Rfkill, is the functionality to disable or enable usually the radio, which equals the WIFI, or WIFI Bluetooth combo module, in notebooks for example.

You definitely want RFKILL on notebooks so you can turn off and turn on (which equals toggle) wifi. So you can for example preserve the notebook battery when you do not need wifi.

You definitely want ASUS WMI, Windows management ... (Microsoft STandard), when you have a modern ASUS notebook, e.g. ivybridge cpu or newer.

In my point of view, I think the question regarding "&&" and "||" orginates from from the C coding language:
&& ... and
|| .... or
I tried giving you a reference somewhere regarding kernel config and && and || but could not find any in a short amount of time.
