In computing, a spell checker (or spell check) is an application that flags words in a document that may not be spelled correctly. Spell check mainly focuses on the correctness or proper way of how a word is spelled whereas, grammar check (or grammar checker is an application that flags sentences or the structure of the sentence and how it is written or typed. It usually involves proper punctuation, word agreements and proper use and placement of nouns, adjectives, adverbs, verbs, etc. It points out why the sentence or sentences is in disagreement according to language rules and format.

"I can't answer that question," he says with a sly smile. Yes, go to the tools menu and click on spelling and grammar, there should be something there to turn it off. The above instructions will run a "spell check" on your text. As will pressing F7. But to see the option to truly turn off spell & grammar checking, you will need to go to Tools. Then go to Options, then click on the "spelling & grammar" tab. To turn off spell check - Remove the check mark next to: "check spelling as you type" AND remove the check mark next to "check grammar as you type".

I'm not sure I understand what you mean by differentiate, but if you are using the grammar and spelling checker in Word, you have options. For instance, when the checker stops on questionable spelling and/or grammar, you can click to check grammar (uncheck if already checked). If you click on options on that page, you can choose your own rules by checking/unchecking the boxes. Hope this helps!
