CVS is like the toilet paper - once you use it, it's not clean
to roll it back ;-)

To get over it just make a desired branch from a current main trunk,
then ckeck out recent main trunk, export (cvs export) the version you want
to be `on the top' and commit changes.

It depends up to you. Generally speaking branches are good for
several versions of the same software. If your apps share the same
source files, branches would help you. If this is not the case
you can use modules to have everything together but relatively
independent. Separate repositories expect no links between projects.
You can define independent permissions, pre and post-commit actions etc.
but you are not sharing the same sources.
