ANY farrier or trimmer can do a barefoot trim. If a farrier doesn't know how to do a barefoot trim, I would not waste my time with him.
Someone at my barn says she asks the farrier to do a mustang roll and he say he doesn't know what she's talking about. Liar. I suggested she tell him she wants a nice roll on the edges, and wait until he does it. Or he won't get paid for doing half a job. It's not a choice. You pay the bill.
Tianmalz has explained the difference well. I'd just like to add that a barefoot trim leaves the walls longer than a shoe trim. And leaves some dead sole for protection.
