There isn't a high speed railway between Venice/Venezia and Ferrara but Frecce trains provide the fastest express services on this route.
Those faster Frecce trains are typically the best option if you can book in advance, you may not have to pay much more for the speed and comparative comfort and tickets also include complimentary seat reservations.
Though you'll need to commit to taking a specific departure when booking the cheapest type of tickets.
In contrast, if you'll be booking last minute tickets at the station, the slower and more frequent Regionale Veloce (RV) trains will be the cheaper option - so they become the best option for a spontaneous day trip to beautiful Ferrara by train.
When travelling between most cities by train there is only one logical option, though on other journeys there is a choice between different trains or alternative routes. If different options are available you can use the info to decide which is best for you.
