Internment camp and relocation camps were the same, period. The terms were and are used interchangeably.
No they were not the same, one you were interred and not free to leave in the other you could leave and relocate elsewhere if you chose to and IIRC some 30% of Japanese Americans who initially went to relocation camps left and resettled elsewhere before the end of the war.

It's never acceptable to lock up a bunch of citizens and non citizens due to nothing other than mass hysteria and racism.
I would agree with the Citizens not being locked up. I would not agree about the non citizens. detention of enemy Aliens has been a part of international law for a long, long, time.
