    A cover letter is used to send something else. It could be a resume or a box of samples or anything else, but it's point is to draw your attention to what is being sent.

    A letter of application is specifically to apply for something. You may or may not include your resume (if it's a job) or your school records (if it's admission to a university).
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I'd like to ask if there is any differences between a letter of application and a covering letter. I have some doubts. Maybe they are practically the same.

    )) is not an acceptable way to finish a sentence.
