ldapd vs. slapd

I've been attempting to get an OpenLDAP server running all day, and I've
been reading official documentation, tutorials, and anything else relevant
on Google. I have some questions:

1. What is the difference between ldapd & slapd (and commands such as
ldapadd & slapdadd)? Slapd doesn't seem to respond on LDAP ports, but ldapd

2. When using commands & configuring ldap.conf, can I use an IP address
instead of an FQDN for the host URI?

3. Do self-signed certificates break ldapadd?

4. I'm running with an SSL certificate, but no TLS. I commonly get the error
"Confidentiality Required." The -Z option is for TLS. How do I tell ldapadd
that I'm using SSL only? I tried with -Hldaps://hostname:636, but then I get
"ldap_sasl_bind(SIMPLE): Can't connect to LDAP server" (even if I use the -x
option). I know that the ldap server is running because when ldapd is
running, I can connect with external tools such as jxplorer or ldap-at (but
trying to make changes to my database will crash both of those utilities).
