Does "iar" correspond to the English "whereas" or the Slavic "a"?

Yes, it is very similar to the russian "а". "Whereas" is also a good translation.

    Could someone clarify the difference between iar and și in this context?

    Here are two tongue-in-cheek examples: 1. “iar” is contrasting and “și” is additional.

    1. “iar” is contrasting whereas “și” is additional.
