Hello everybody !
1)Which classes should I use to do some "Healing" (not sewing) on a set of adjacent faces ?
2) What are the classes Adaptor (Adaptor3d_... , Adaptor2d_... ) made for ?
Thank you in advance for your answers.

1). You can figure out the appropriate class consulting the API of any particular method you would like to use. Most often they work on TopoDS_Shape, sometimes directly on geometrical objects - Handle(Geom_Curve), Handle(Geom_Surface), etc.
2). Adaptor classes implement an "adaptor" pattern (if you are familiar with such) wrapping different representations into some common interface. For example, there is an adaptor to represent curve (Adaptor3d_Curve) from really a curve (GeomAdaptor_Curve) or edge (BRepAdaptor_Edge) or even wire (BRepAdaptor_CompCurve).
If documentation does shed enough light, CDL and source code should be quite self-explaining.
Hope this helps.
