I have tried to look up in Internet and didn't find answers. Moreover, I didn't understand very well this explanation.
Can someone explain what Window Station is in simple terms? Where do you use it? When? How do they work?

https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/askperf/2007/07/24/sessions-desktops-and-windows-stations/ seems to cover it - I found it by googling for 'windows station object" (since your article refers to
Each window station object is a securable object and that seemed like a good place to go deeper)
A session consists of all of the processes and other system objects that represent a single user’s logon session. These objects include all windows, desktops and windows stations. A desktop is a session-specific paged pool area and loads in the kernel memory space. This area is where session-private GUI objects are allocated from. A windows station is basically a security boundary to contain desktops and processes. So, a session may contain more than one Windows Station and each windows station can have multiple desktops.
Seems to be a useful starting point.
They even have a lovely image showing the relationship between these things
Essentially a windows station 'contains' the 'desktops' and processes for a user. A session contains a windows station, which contains one or more desktops - with a 'desktop' being a login window, a 'session' of windows as we understand it, or UAC.
The article goes into much more detail (than I can understand tbh) but the windows performance blogs seem to be a much better in depth resource for these things.
