From what I have read, Realflow is a package that is soley for creating liquid, such as water being an obvious one. What about the look of the water, where is that done? If you have used realflow then a reply on some specifics would be nice. Thanks.

The look of the water is determined in your 3D package, your render will determine how far your water will reach realism.

So, realflow only just creates the motion of the liquid the look and realism is done in a second package, a 3d suite basically. But then does that make it easy to create water?

realflow just does the simulation/animation of a mesh or mesh bodies to be that of water colliding with whatever objects. You then export this baked animation mesh into your main 3d package. The texturing and lighting of your water scene is up to you, so how realistic it gets partially depends on your own texturing/lighting/rendering skills.
