The *.dts and *.dtb files are related to the device tree source and binary formats. When you work with a hardware project using the Xilinx ISE 14.6/Vivado 2013.2 tools, a dts file will be create. This contains the base address and other parameters for each device peripheral, e.g. serial ports, video controller, etc.
The yocto build system takes these files and generates the required *.dtb file.
Please refer the Zynq Base TRD 14.6 document, (you can quickly scan through the document and fast forward to section 8.2, for building a dtb file from a dts file)
From a support standpoint, both the ZC702 and Zedboard are supported really well. You will find that most of the Xilinx reference design and application notes usually always target the ZC702. If you get a Zedboard you'll need to take the extra effort to adapt the pin constraints file. Also the ZC702 has two FMC LPC connectors rather than 1 FMC LPC connector, if that's more important for you.
My recommendation would be to go in for the ZC702 or the ZC706 if you need more logic density.
