Milk teeth are temporary teeth as they drop off by age 12 and are then replaced by the permanent teeth which should last till you get old
The difference between permanent teeth and milk teeth is their size and their permanence. Milk teeth tend to be smaller and sharper than permanent teeth, but they do not remain in the mouth for very long. Permanent teeth are larger and last longer.

The 3rd molars (wisdom teeth) erupt separately from the deciduous or permanent sets, generally between the age of 15 and 21.

Teeth don't grow back. Basically you get two sets, first the baby/milk teeth, then your permanent teeth. Wisdom teeth are the last of your permanent teeth to emerge. If you lose a milk tooth it will kinda-sorta be replaced with a permanent tooth (which you would have gotten eventually anyhow). When a permanent tooth is lost it's gone, your body won't make a new one. If you've lost a rear molar before you've gotten your wisdom teeth, then it might look like it's grown back, but it hasn't. It's been replaced by the wisdom tooth that you would have gotten eventually anyhow.
