Specifically, I want to know if the idea of the three points (both feet and the ball) touching the frontcourt in NFHS apllies only to the dribbler as is does in NCAA?
Yes. It's the same. Here's the NCAA rule.

4-3-3c. During a dribble from back court to front court, the ball shall be in
the front court when both feet of the dribbler and the ball touch the
playing court entirely in the front court.
