Question about Cerebro and telepathy in First Class

About Cerebro: Is it only for detecting mutants or does it amplify mind-control abilities as well? It's hard to tell just from this.

About the movie: Charles tells Erik that he has the ability to "make" Erik stay, but won't use it.

I assumed Emma had this same ability, but she doesn't use it to control either Colonel Landry or the Soviet General. She uses that other trick to influence the General. Does anyone know if this was done just to move the plot along or if there's significance there? Is there a description somewhere of movie verse Emma's set of abilities?
