What is the difference between alignment and syncing and what is syncing used for? 
In general, and not specific to Sky Planetarium or any one OnStep client program, Sync
is like this:
- Start a goto on a star
- Using the N/S/W/E, center the star in the eyepiece the best you can
- Click on Sync

So it basically means "my telescope is now centered on the object I last did a Goto on,
so adjust the scope internal position to the celestial sphere accordingly".

Alignment is described here

Also, is tracking activated during alignment? 
Yes.
