United States Ship is the preface the the ships in the US Navy. There are some others used, such as USNS (United States Naval Ship) which are operated by the Military Sealift Command.

USS, on every American naval ship, means United States Ship. HMS means His/Her Majesty's Ship.

There were several ships used throughout the war. The two you are referring to are probably the USS Monitor vs. CSS Virginia (formerly known as the USS Merrimack) at the Battle of Hampton Roads. This was the first battle between two ironclad ships. The two ship fought to a stalemate.

The WWII Light Cruiser USS Houston (CL-81) and the Fleet Tug USS Pawnee (ATF-74) are the 2 ships associated with this phrase. Pawnee flashed a message to Houston after the cruiser was struck by Japanese torpedoes near Formosa, which said "We will stand by you".

No, only those owned by the US, as in United States Ship. The British naval vessels are HMS for Her (or his) Majesties Ship.

This is what those terms stand for. SS stands for Steam Ship. USS stand for United State Ship. And HMS stands for His or Her Majesty's Ship.
