AzureApp is a login mode that will use an Azure App to impersonate a specific user and perform actions on their behalf. It uses the AzureApplicationID, AzureAppPermissions, Username and Password/SecurePassword properties. This login mode is only available for SharePoint Online instances only.
You should use AppOnly for SharePoint sites for which you are able to create an app-principal. When you create a SharePoint app-principal you will obtain a Client Id and a Client Secret and you will use the two codes for logging in and the credentials are no longer required!
