what's the difference between pin position and locking

a dimension? don't they both create a constraint the same?

when would you use one instead of the other?

When you import a dwg or image into Revit, use the PIN to pin down its position. This is to avoid accidentally moving it if you are tracing over the info. As for contraint, you basically "locked"  e.g the dimension, from being changed. So if you move the wall, the dimension remains the same. In some cases, Revit will warn there is a contraint attached to the object. I don't think you can contraint a file you import into Revit.
