To the best of my understanding, a barefoot trim is trimmed to be well..barefoot, to protect the foot without the aid of shoes. I heard that when you shoe, you rasp it flat so that the shoes stay on better.
But that's just what I've been told by different people. *shrug*

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.

For years a horse was either shod or trimmed. Barefoot or pasture trim was unheard of. There were also only well qualified farriers who would study how the horse moved and would ask what your plans were. Then he would make a recommendation based on the horse's needs. BTW, the term "bevel" the hoof seems to have been replaced by "mustang roll" and not all farriers would be familiar with the change of terms.
