Addressing the second part of your question, dipole-dipole interactions increase as the polarity of atoms/molecules increase. Polarity is due to unequal sharing of electrons between atoms within the molecule. Hope that helps!

This type of bonding was just touched on in lecture recently, so its ok if youre not extremely familiar with it.
These four types of interactions are all pretty much the same if I am not mistaken:
1. dispersion =
2. induced dipole - induced dipole =
3. London =
4. Van Der Waals
