Always include a cover letter with a CV or Application Form. Even if it is only a couple of lines long it shows a professional courtesy that will reflect well on you.
A cover letter (this could also be an introductory email) is an essential part of the application process in that it gives you the opportunity to announce yourself and invite the employer to read (usually your CV) about you, your experience and about the skills you can bring to them.
Yes! A letter can help bridge any missing gaps in your application or set the context for your application particularly if you are looking to take on a different role.
