Pages used in succession for PayPal Payments Pro

Pages used in succession for PayPal Payments Pro

Having used PayPal Standard for years, I have always used the IPN method of triggering certain behaviors after the payment was successful.
But now I am transitioning to the PP Pro setup and I noticed that there are several pages generated.

What should the process be after checking out at PayPal?
I know that it goes from productpage.php (add to cart) > cart.php > checkout.php > PayPal web site > ???

After the customer goes to PayPal and logs in, what SHOULD happen? Will they return to the website to confirm the order or will that be completed at PayPal?

I know that the checkout_failure.php page is used if there is something wrong when they try to checkout. What about the checkout_success.php and pp_confirm.php pages? I wanted to add an email receipt to a page after they make their payment.
