We can se files with MP# extension. Is MP3 a container also, or it is a codec alone?

If its a codec alone, then how can we play and have some meta information in the mp3 files?

I understand your confusion.

mp4 is a container, usually containing aac audio and/or avc video.
mp3 is audio probably with a sort of it's own container, allowing tags etc to be stored.

Can't wait for a HD-AAC encoder :P
