Being impeached.

Being impeached is incorrect. The House votes whether to "impeach" a president with articles concerning the charges. Once impeached, the Senate votes whether to remove a president from office, while the Chief Justice presides over the trial. Bill Clinton was impeached, but not removed from office.

I think kicking a president out of office is simply referred to as removal from office.

Can a judge be removed from office if Congress disagrees with his or her decision in a case?

No. A judge may be removed from office for misconduct (breaking the law). But while that isn't listed as grounds for impeachment of a federal judge in and of itself. however, congress sets its own rules of evidence and there is no court of appeal for their decision. If the essence of the case were that the jurists decision was so flawed that it indicated that the jurist was permanently impaired, incompetent, or corrupt and refused to step down from the bench, then impeachment might be called for. Only 14 federal judges have been removed by impeachment since 1789.
