Different, STAR-CD is cd's older solver and has lots of multiphysics, moving mesh etc capabilities STAR-DESIGN is a "cut down" package with CAD modelling and more limited physics, it uses the new solver STAR-CCM+ which is a bit like STAR-CD in terms of capability but a lot easier to use.

Yes, if the physics are relatively simple then STAR-Design is fine, if you want to add in other things such as radiation, multi species transport and or more advanced meshing I would suggest moving to STAR-CCM+, it is very easy to use so it isn't much of a step up.
