Why arent force and energy exactly the same?

Force is the rate of exchange of momentum, while energy is something that is conserved. While they are different, they have a close relationship. Energy is what you get when you apply a force over a distance.

Specifically, Energy = Work= ∫Fdx.

If the force is constant then, Energy = Work = F*Δx
