I can do both database level incremental backup and datafile level backup. While when I am doing recovery, how do I know which one rman is going to use and if it is possible for me to designate the specific backups?

Oracle will automatically choose the right files to restore. It does an excellent job of it, so best is to just trust it and leave it alone! To ensure that you can recover, do a test restore:

RMAN> restore validate database;

Starting restore at 02-AUG-04
using channel ORA_DISK_1

channel ORA_DISK_1: starting validation of datafile backupset
channel ORA_DISK_1: restored backup piece 1
piece handle=/backups/ORCL/backupset/2004_08_02/o1_mf_nnndf_TAG20040802T183302_0jwv5yj4_.bkp
channel ORA_DISK_1: validation complete
Finished restore at 02-AUG-04

Best regards.
