The main ones to consider here are frozen rotor and transient rotor stator. Read the documentation and tutorials for a detailed explanation but in short the FR approach is steady state so the impeller does not move (but the effects of its motion are modelled) whereas TRS is the full transient rotating thing. If you want to see a rotating impeller you need TRS. If you want the final psuedo-steady state solution the FR is probably OK. The walls of the rotating frame of reference domain are defined relative to its reference frame. That is a "stationary" wall rotates with the reference frame from an absolute frame of reference.
