I wanted to know if this jailbreak would be like the previous ones where you could jailbreak your device while using your device?

No, you have to be connected to a computer and be in DFU mode

probably also need a copy of the 6.1 IPSW as the pointer file

No one knows if it will require dfu... I doubt it will.

Because they did not make it like that and it is not easy. If you aren't happy feel free to make one yourself.

But for the record the creator of the jailbreaks, @comex, has retired from creating jailbreaks. It is unlikely we will see another.
