The front of a regular train is usually pulled by a locomotive. This is the powerhouse of the train. If your train doesn't have a locomotive, but looks like cars with a window for the train crew, then that can be called the cab car, or as you put it, "the head of a train". There isn't any slang (that I know of) used to call it something special. I uses "front of train", but "head" sounds better. We do shorten "locomotive" to just "loco".

Yes an electric train uses a locomotive.

The first locomotive was invented by George Stephenson.

The locomotive pull a string of cars that make up a train. The locomotive was first powered by steam, but now they are mostly powered by diesel electric motors.

If by 'train' you mean a railway locomotive, then the answer is 'locomotive' e.g. At the turn of the 20th century the transport infrastructure was centred around the locomotive industry. If by 'train' you mean the verb to practise then I can't help you.

A locomotive (also called an engine) is a vehicle that provides the power to pull (or push) a train. As well as the locomotive, the train consist of the vehicles which actually contain what is being transported. These can be either freight wagons, or passenger carriages. Locomotives are classified depending on how they are powered. The first locomotives were steam powered (a 'steam engine'), modern locomotives are either powered by electricity or by a diesel engine (an 'electric locomotive' or a 'diesel locomotive'). A steam train is a train which is being powered by a steam engine. Some passenger trains have diesel or electric motors under the carriages and do not need a separate locomotive.

A locomotive is what supplies the power. A locomotive can in itself be considered a train depending on its function. A cowcatcher!
