If I select a hosting package that offering CDN support as Cloudflare, Incapsula..then how do server stat tools work, since web pages are served by different servers from all over the world? Can I rely on them in this case?

Using a CDN would take some of the load off of your hosting account since your static files would be server from the CDN.

The stats in your hosting account would still show how much of the hosting servers bandwidth/CPU/ram is being used on the hosting server, just not how much your website is using from all servers.

All CDN solutions are not working with the same system. Cloudflare or Incapsula are providing CDN using a proxy :
visitors -> Cloudflare -> VPS
But some other like KeyCDN or MaxCDN can be used with a subdomain to host only your website assets. It require only to call cdn.yourdomain.com/style.css instead of yourdomain.com/style.css. In this case the visitors will load the assets from the CDN but the page will be display directly from your server.
