There is no real difference, Johnny. They are just different names for the same thing. They used to be called favicons when they were 16 x 16 pixels and used .ico files. Now we can use normal .png files of (minimum) 512 x 512 pixels. And Site Icon is the current term.

Did you read these?

Thanks, Marion, that cleared it up for me. I decided to use the same image so I would be consistent with my logo and brand. Thanks for all your help. johnny

Favicons are small square images usually 16×16 pixels which are used by web browsers to show a graphical representation of the site being visited at the left side of the browser’s address bar.

But I don't know what do you mean when you are saying site icon ...

when you go to the site manager, in appearance, then customize, then branding, you will see logo image, favicon image, and site icon image.
