RE:Portal vs. aspx development
You cannot use CMSWebPArtZone in aspx since it is a control made for portal engine to display the zones on Design tab (this tab is not present in ASPX templates). When using aspx templates, you can use standard ASPX coding for creating the layout and insert the web parts and controls where you want to, so there is no need for zones.
You can write your own aspx templates and then combine it with portal engine - http://www.kentico.com/docs/devguide/combining_aspx_templates_and_p.htm.
In general, Portal engine is better for less experienced users and it is little bit limited in usage. ASPX templates are better for experienced developers whare they can edit the code directly.
