Yes and no. In the UK, the term "cornflour" does indeed often refer to what others know as cornstarch.

However, cornflour can also refer to flour made from corn, or corn meal (as opposed to cornstarch, which is only part of the corn flour). While they will both thicken a broth or juice, the corn flour will leave a strong taste. The cornstarch will not leave an aftertaste, which is why it is used as a thickener.

Absolutely. Cornstarch and cornflour are the same thing. Generally speaking, the product will be called cornstarch in the USA. In Commonwealth countries, except for Canada, it will be called cornflour. Cornflour may be made from either wheat or maize (it will generally be labelled as "wheaten cornflour" if it is from wheat). The word "corn" in this context goes back to Old English and meant "grain with the seed still in" rather than referring to a specific species. It is ground from the endosperm of the grain and has a "quick sand" appearance when mixed with liquid. It will yield easily to gentle pressure but will resist sudden or violent pressure. Cornflour corn starch is different from corn meal or polenta and these cannot be substituted.

Cornstarch is cornflour, just ground to a smaller diameter. If you have cornflour and a grinder, just grind it some more, just like you would grind crystallized sugar into icing sugar. Once you are done, use a thin sieve to filter out the remaining flour-size grain. The only type of cornflour that cannot be ground into proper starch is if it still contains the germs or skins of the kernels, but most corn flour already has these parts removed, for instance in order to extract maize oil.
