when-new-form-instance fires when a form first starts up.
It fires after pre-form, once the cursor is in the first navigable field. It allows restricted built-ins, which pre-form does not.
Basically anything you want to do to the form at start-up should go there (setting defaults, messing around with the layout based on config, executing queries if you want to that straight away).

When-window-activated fires when it says.
Forms can have multiple windows.
It's useful if you want to mess about with contents of a window when it's activated.

Spend some time reading up on windows in the form builder help.

Have a look at the window node in form builder. You can create multiple windows and you can assign canvases to different windows.
