[erlang-questions] Messing with heart. Port and NIF, which one is better?

Hello,
I am beginner-level erlang user and i got two questions here,
is there a way to save my processes if the VM crashes?

And the second question,
Is there any good argument to use NIF instead of creating a connected
process for a port.

P.S: I know if there is a bug in NIF the VM might crash unlike a
port-process, which can be restarted when it crashes.
Thank You,
