Crystal and caramel malts are the same thing. They taste different based on who makes them.

Briess malts come in 6-row and 2-row

What brands are you looking at?

Yes, crystal and caramel are different names for the same thing.

Depending on the maltster, you'll also see "cara" for those types of malts, like carastan, carared.
