Distillation and Filtration which is cheaper?

Expect simple filtration by gravity to use less energy than distillation (where you have to take the material to its gaseous state) so it will be cheaper, but if you're considering reverse osmosis (a hi-tech form of filtering) against solar-powered distillation (in a solar still), the running costs of R-O are large, the running costs of a solar still are small.

What type of desalination is it when you use a cup a pot and a solar light to make the water rise and fall into the cup?

The process you're describing is distillation, though there may be another name for it in the context of desalination. Pure water is distilled off the solution by the sunlight, condenses, then drips into the cup. Solar Distillation, maybe?

Is simple distillation good or fractional distillation?

Fractional distillation is a better process.

Is condensation a type of distillation?

Not really. It's a part of distillation, not a type of distillation.

Why can't we remove salt from ocean water?

We can. Available options include distillation and reverse osmosis. The problem with large scale application of this techniques is that they are expensive. On a smaller scale, most lifeboats have solar distillation units to provide fresh drinking water.

What is the difference between simple distillation and fractional distillation?

Simple distillation is used to separate a solvent from a solution whereas fractional distillation is used to separate two miscible solvents. Fractional distillation makes use of fractionating column unlike simple distillation.

Other than stills is there a different way of solar distillation?

You can do what i call reverse distillation. You raise the temp of the water to just below its boiling point so that non of the water evaporates. However other substances in the water with lower boiling points will still distill off.
