Do you mean roaming? That is entirely done by wpa_supplicant.

How does NetworkManager handle handover between different networks: 
i.e. a mobile network and a WiFi network.

What do you mean with "handover" here? You can have different networks
("connections" in NetworkManager speak) active at the same time.
In that case, priorities are determined based on routing and route
metrics. The same is true for the default-route.

Not sure if that answers your questions :)
