Question Difference between tippet and leader?

Hello to the fly fishing aficionados around the world.


I'm a neophyte just picking up fly fishing and would like to have two questions answered.

1) What is the difference between a tippet and a leader?

2) Do flyline "eyelits" work really well? (It is needlelike and you insert the eyelit into the flyline and then tie the leader to the eye)

Thank you.
