IMapLayer its a layer which linked with map, and can be FeatureLayer, RasterLayer etc..

IFeatureLayer its a layer with point, line or polygon features, and may be not linked with any map.

IMapFeatureLayer its IFeatureLayer linked with map, and have properties and methods from both.

if layer linked with map, its have symbology, labels, legendtext etc..

When use which interface depends from your task.

P.S. Sorry from my English.. I from Ukraine..

Could you elaborate a bit on the difference between IMapLayer and IMapFeatureLayer?

If you have a look at the interfaces you'll see that IMapFeatureLayer inherits from IMapLayer and IFeatureLayer.
IMapLayer only inherits from ILayer and has one own function (DrawRegions).
IFeatureLayer inherits from 14 Interfaces and has about 30 functions, 10 properties and 3 event handlers.
