Is openCV using OpenSIFT. If yes, if I have to modify SIFT code for some of my research, should I use it from within OpenCV or directly use OpenSIFT ?

no, opencv is using its own implementation.

(also, i'd be a bit wary about the code here, it's using deprecated c-api code all the way down, and development stopped 2 years ago.)

I think using the OpenCV code is better, since it got more attention and tends to fix issue much faster. Other options are EzSIFT, VLFeat.
