You know how sometimes the English language can be vague with wording and phrases? This is one of those times. I know that the acronym PWA stands for Progressive Web App but is there a difference when saying
- an app is a PWA, and
- that a web app is progressive
or none at all? HELP!

I guess you mean "Progressive Enhancement" with "Progressive". That describes that the used technologies in a website stack on top of each other with increasing complexity, as opposed to relying on a complex technology building everything else.
A website using a traditional html/css/js stack always displays content, even if the css and js fail. It enhances progressively with complexity.
A Progressive Web App is a term coined for a website that is progressively enhanced, uses a service worker and is offline-capable.
