You can setup a workflow however you like using forms and views.

To further elaborate on Walter's answer. You can have a field that is a radio for "approved/unapproved" and trigger email actions based on the condition of that field. No add-on needed, just a licensed version.

This is a view action for approved entries, but it's pretty intuitive in the email action as well:

Sure. It's a lot of custom code or add-ons, but yeah, you can extend it if you can write the code.
