What is the difference between pasta and macaroni?
In English-speaking countries, the name macaroni is customarily given to a specific shape of pasta (i.e. small pasta tubes cut into short pieces). In the U.S. and the United Kingdom, this pasta is often prepared by baking it with a sauce made from cheddar cheese; the resulting dish is called macaroni and cheese.

Nothing. Penne is a type of macaroni. Just like rigatoni, tortiglioni and elbows are types of macaroni. A lot of people think that elbow macaroni is the only type of macaroni …that is to be called macaroni, but they're wrong.

Pizza is a bread with pizza sauce smothered on top and with melted cheese on top of that. Pizza may also have other toppings such as pepperoni, sausage, anchovies, etc. Pasta… is noodles made from wheat and water.

No; "macaroni" is probably derived from a Latin root (we get "macerate" from the same root), it isn't someone's name. Macaroni (the pasta) is probably an Arabic invention.
Blanching pasta means briefly dipping past in water to soften it, you are not cooking it. For example, you would blanch lasagna sheets to soften them before placing them in a …pan to be covered with sauce and cheese. Whereas boiling implies that the pasta will be cooked, at least to al dente.
