you can insert a section break, then have each section with a different (or same) header and/or footer

a little tricky at first, especially with page numbers as they're controlled outside the header/footer area when using different page start numbers

also watch for the 'different first page' option being checked
when you look at the layout tab in page set up

go to:
insert
break
next page (inserts a page break plus section break)

helps if you have: tools, options, formatting marks, all
- checked off, then you can see where the section breaks are

sounds confusing but works well once you get the hang of it, and actually see the different controls and options i'm referring to.

'simple question' - this is a microsoft product!

i've used them for complex documents / proposals / reports where the footer may contain:

different page number formats
- i, ii, iii, iv etc for table of contents or indexes at the beginning,
or references, bibliographies addenda at the end

section titles, similar to above, where you want to identify pages in a section or part of the report but don't want to clutter the header up with too much information and a myriad of font sizes

inclusion of third party documents where you want to identify the source

all depends what type of documents you produce, how you like the document to look
- or how the document MUST look if you're responding to a RFP from a GO or NGO, or have a picky corporate client
