A 5.25" external enclosure is a tool you can use to transform your 5.25 inch drive into an external drive.
Getting an external enclosure is an effective way of making use of an extra internal drive you have and turn it into a portable external drive. Also, purchasing an actual external 5.25" drive is a lot more expensive, so if you want an external drive, using that drive you already own and transforming it into an external drive will be a more cost-effective choice.
An external 5.25" DVD drive is a great tool. You can bring it anywhere with you so whenever you need to read a DVD, write to a DVD you're ready to go. Some enclosures also offer protection from damage and wearing giving your drive a longer lifespan.
Yes, you can. Installing an internal 5.25" drive into an enclosure is done by just fitting in the brackets, connecting cables and screwing the drive in place. However, if you are not confident of installing the drive yourself, it is better to leave it to an expert.
