I guess you are talking about the function zeroinfl() from the package 
"pscl"? It supports all "method"s of optim() and in addition supports "EM" 
estimation. Typically, all yield very similar optimized likelihood values 
and associated parameters.

That depends on what type of predictions you want to obtain. The vignette
   vignette("countreg", package = "pscl")
has some examples and further explanations.
