What type of free kick is awarded for an offside in soccer?

When play is stopped for an offside offense, play is restarted with an indirect free kick from the spot where the offending player was when his teammate last played the ball, which may be quite some distance from the location of the ball or player when play is finally stopped. If the placement of the ball is within the goal area, the ball may be placed anywhere inside the goal area (similar to a goal kick, except that it is indirect). If the placement of the ball is within the penalty area (including the goal area), the ball is not in play and may not be touched again by any player until it travels directly out of the penalty area. As with any free kick, the player taking the kick may not touch the ball again until it has touched another player. As with any indirect free kick, a goal may not be scored until the ball touches another player (if the ball goes directly into the opponent's goal, the restart is a goal kick). As with any free kick, an own-goal may not be scored directly, and play would be restarted with a corner kick if it happens.

Can a player in AFL football kick a goal at any time from the boundary line?

Yes. Once an umpire has called play to continue or has not blown his whistle to stop play, any player on the field can kick a goal from inside the boundary line at any time; there are no formal restrictions on who, when, where, or how as long as the ball is considered to be within the field of play. Even when a player is awarded a free kick due to an opposition player kicking the ball out of play on the full, the player taking the free kick is quite at liberty to kick a goal directly from that boundary line free kick.
