IMO they are all basically the same thing- just worded differently. A more knowledgeable brewer might chime in though and correct me...

I agree. There may be small differences between brands, but they are all interchangeable.

Some recipes are not specific, so you need to know your malts. Some maltsters may have a 2-row and a then a 2-row Pale Ale malt. The Pale Ale malt is kilned longer, so it developes more flavor and color.

You can look at examples here. The 2-row is 1.8 L, the Pale Ale is 3.5 L.

Basically, pale and what's referred to as "2 row" as usually the same thing.  The caveat is that 2 row is a variety of malt and can be kilned to different degrees of color.  Pale ale malt is 2 row that's been kilned a little darker than what's referred to as pale malt.

+1, 2-row "pale" malt will usually be a lighter color than 2-row "pale ale" malt.
