what's the difference between "caraid" and "charaid"?
"caraid" is the non lenited form, and "charaid" is the lenited form. There are a lot of times when you would use the lenited form. When you're addressing someone is one of those times. Hope that's helpful :-)
What does "a" mean in this sentence?
It's a particle that goes before the name of a person / people / a thing when addressing them/it (unless the name begins with a vowel).
See 'vocative case'.
Do you add something else if the name begins with a vowel?
No. The a isn't used in those cases.
It's basically there to show you are talking directly to a friend rather than about someone who is a friend.
It's also used when addressing people.
Ciamar a tha thu a Sheumas? (how are you James?)
Ciamar a tha Seumas? (How is James?)
