VPN obscures your real IP address from being tracked, most people use software VPN's. Port forwarding redirects an external request to a port in your router to a specific application (and specific computer) like RDP, so you or others can connect to your computer from outside your network. Any router should support port forwarding, but it also opens up a port to outside hacking, hence not secure.
