So your drill/spindle is operated by hand you turn it on and off before you start and when you finish by hand. It does not get plugged into the ramps board. You can but it takes some extra electronics.

Repetier is the control software, it is just what talks to the machine. You make the gcode in something like ESTLCAM, and then load it into repetier for cutting, if you are printing You can use repetier for it all.
