The term "rebound" is not a billiards term. However, a ball "bouncing" off a rail might be termed rebound to someone that is not a billiards player. The action off a rail is complex and the simple term used is "bank". The bank shot changes the balls direction, momentum, and rotational momentum so cannot be considered a simple rebound.

How do billiards players use angles in playing billiards?

Billiards players calculate bank shots, but this is not performed using simple angles. When a billiard ball strikes a rail cushion at an angle, the angular momentum is changed, in addition to angle of rebound. This rail induced english results in the bal coming off the rail at a greater angle than the angle it struck the rail cushion at. For extremely powerful shots, the cushion compression reduces the angle of deflection. These are calculated by an experienced player, a more complex calculation than simple angles.
