In what situation would you know to use the nerst equation?

You can use it to mainly predict a cell potential of an electrochemical reaction or finding the concentrations of the species of an electrochemical reaction.

What is the difference between cell potential and standard cell potential?

standard cell potential is for reactions that are in equilibrium while cell potential is calculated from the Nernst equation for reactions that may or may not be in equilibrium
