In VCDS it's called activate brake lining change and you activate it to retract the piston winder then you can turn off ignition and work on changing the pads (don't forget you still need to push back the pistons once the winder has retracted)
Once you've done the pad change then pad lining change can be deactivated.
Not sure if OBD 11 is the same.

I had it connected yes but it's not essential as it's not actually doing anything.
I don't see why a battery charger is needed to be honest.
