Hey there Kasun,
Get-Help or TechNet would be a good place to start. It'll give you a synopsis of what the cmdlet does, and even some examples in which you would use the cmdlet.
Hope this helps!

Kasun, can you tell us what are you trying to do? or is this just academic interest?
New-NetLbfoTeam creates a NIC team. This is something you can do separate and apart from the Hyper-V role. So, a physical or virtual computer can have a NIC team (or more) that provide features like bandwidth aggregation, network load balancing, and network fault tolerance. This is much more commonly used than New-NetSwitchTeam
New-NetSwitchTeam creates a switch team. This is something you can create on a physical computer (only) that has the Hyper-V role installed. It is controlled by a Hyper-V extensible switch forwarding extension. This is rarely used.
So, if you're trying to do NIC teaming you should use New-NetLbfoTeam
