How do planets and moons compare and contrast?

A planet orbits a star (and clears its orbit - new rule - which is why Pluto is now not a planet), while a moon orbits a planet. Someday they will find something that orbits a moon and need a new name. Some moons are bigger than some planets, or at least were before the latest rule change. A star that orbits another star is still a star in its own right. There are objects which are not quite full stars and not quite planets.
