Hello! I have a question about what is difference of the "unlocked" 3570k and the regular 3570k, I know this question may sound n00bish but this has been a "pimple" in my thoughts.

Another question as well, I need a suggestion on which fan would perform well with the Cooler Master 212 EVO from either Noctua or Deep Cool brands.

Thank you in Advance

Well any cpu from intel with a 'k' at the end of its name has an unlocked multiplier, meaning it can be easily overclocked.
I am not familiar with performance fan lineups, but if you are blowing into a heat sink you want high static pressure, as the fins cause resistance and make it harder for the fan to blow through.

So its basically a regular 3570k but much more simpler to overclock?

The 3570k is unlocked. There are no locked 3570k. Do not pay more for one somebody has labeled unlocked, it is the exact same chip as every other 3570k.

There is only a 3570K, it is unlocked, that's it. the 3570 is the locked variant. If someone is selling you the 'unlocked' 3570K for more than a 3570k, then it's scam.
