You can use user data, but only at instance launch, not after the launch. Heat has several deployment options, perhaps some work on already running instances. You can also install an agent on the image which performs the deployment (again Heat does that).

And of course you can log on to the instance and deploy your system as if the instance were a physical server.

the system i would like to deploy inside the openstack instance is a management system. how user data or heat can be used to proceed this deployment ?

I don’t know your application. Read the Heat documentation, e.g. User data is based on cloud-init and is well integrated with Heat.

how can i access a deployed system/application if i'am using networking option 1 without a floating ip ?

Through the instance’s IP. The instance is connected to a provider network, i.e. a Neutron network that corresponds to a network in the datacenter.
