Are NS solved for each fluid and a commonc velocity field is applied at interface? Exactly, which are the advantages of a euler-eluer vs lagrange model?

The VF equation couples to the velocity and pressure equations by controlling density (along with any other coupling, eg surface tension). In a inhomogenous model a velocity field is solved for each phase. This means at any point different phases can have different velocities - for instance tiny bubbles rising in a stationary liquid. Both homo- and inhomogenous models are eularian models. Lagrange models are totally different - they track bodies (eg particles, bubbles) in a lagrangian framework where each individual body is modelled, rather than a eularian framework where "stuff" is aggregated into control volumes, and you do conservation of "stuff" in control volumes.
