What does 'Factory Reset' mean?

I rooted my T-Mobile Samsung SGH-T679 but some apps like Email and Google Play Store don't work anymore (Sorry! Force Close) but other apps do work. I am considering to Factory Reset the phone and start new but a Google search on this isn't really clear on this procedure. Since this is a programmed T-Mobile phone does the hard reset return to the T-Mobile settings/apps as purchased and I lose my rooted status? Or does it really mean that everything will be deleted and I can start anew and reload only the apps I want?
