How can I reset my BB 8700g to factory settings? I am selling it to my cousin.

If you want to wipe out the customer information, but leave on any applications, go to Options -> Security -> General Settings / Click the wheel and select Wipe Handheld

Is there a difference doing this via Desktop manager?

Certainly. A Desktop Manager wipe deletes everything and replaces it with whatever OS you have designated for installation. A handheld data wipe leaves your OS and applications in place.
Edit: There actually is the option in Desktop manager to just delete user data. I suspect that that is similar to a handheld wipe but can't say if it is identical.
