Isn't the 2's thing 'making others happy makes me happy' ?
Hell, if thats the case I know ALOT of 2 ENFPs.
I dont think it has anything to do directly with Fe either simply for the fact that Fi CAN enjoy making other people happy. I would even go so far as to say that thinking that Fi cant do these things is more inferior and tertiary Fi then anything else and is a bunch of crock. Fe just works different then Fi.
My INFP friend likes to cook for me. She makes me breakfast at work, lunch, she is always buying and doing things for others like cookies, cooking, etc. She goes above and beyond alot for other and its doing the things she enjoys doing. She is dominant Fi and is in no way Fe.
Take what I say with a grain of salt, because that's all it is compared to the ocean of complexity when it comes to actions and real life.
The ENFJ type 2 plans your baby shower and arrives early bearing 1 gift.
The ENFP type 2 decides to go last minute, swings by babies'r'us on the way, and arrives late bearing an armful of gifts.

Yes absolutely. Fe users tend to do to help. Fi users tend to feel to help. If you are sick, an FJ will be more likely to make you soup, buy a you book that they think you would like, do your grocery shopping, feed your pets, get your coworkers to sign a "get better" card (my FJ did this for me!), and keep you well-cared-for during the duration of your sickness. An FP will be more likely to sit with you for hours, watch TV with you, dig up board games for you two to play, research the best medicine for you, order takeout, and keep you cheered up for the duration of your sickness.

Tricky one FJ 9 took me FOREVER to identify. I would say that FJ 9 is helpful, open, and accepting, whereas FP 2 is bubbly, effusive, and demonstrative. There is more volatility to the FP; more consistency to the FJ. FP is more interested in attuning themself to you. FJ is more interested in maintaining a harmonic space between you two.
The two are very different. The ENFJ is an Fe user and the ENFP is an Fi user. That one point alone is enough to differentiate between the two. Also, the ENFP uses Ne and not Ni. So the ENFP will communicate in that Ne bouncy bouncy way whereas the ENFJ will not.
I physically bounce when I talk sometimes. Does that count? ;D
