No. "Planet X" is a temporary, basically meaningless, designation for a planet, given until the planet can be assigned a proper name. It does not refer to any specific planet. For a while, Pluto was referred to as 'Planet X.' However, the title may be given to any type of planet.

out of all the known planets Pluto is the smallest Pluto, because of it's very small size and mass, is no longer considered a planet. It is now referred to as a "dwarf-planet".

No. Pluto is still called Pluto and is no longer considered a planet. Planet X was a planet once believed to orbit beyond Neptune based on the orbit of Uranus deviating from the expected values. When Pluto was first discovered it was believed to be Planet X, but it was later found that Pluto is not massive enough to account for the discrepancy in Uranus' orbit. The Planet X hypothesis was dismissed when we found we had made a small error in calculating the mass of Neptune, which accounted for the deviation in the orbit of Uranus.

Planet X is a theoretical 9th Planet in our solar system that has not been proven to exist.

Generally, Planet X is an undiscovered planet in our solar system. Pluto was "Planet X" until it's discovery in 1930. Scientists postulate the existence of a Planet X by noting irregularities in the orbits of other planets. Now, Pluto and anything past it discovered so far are known as dwarf planets. There maybe another planet somewhere past Pluto, but I believe Planet X now refers to extra-solar planets.

They wanted a Roman or Greek God Name for the new "Planet". PL honored the astronomer who discovered that Pluto should exist.

A planet after the dwarf planet Pluto It Is A Name For A Unnamed And Unconfirmed Planet See related question for Nibiru

Yes and no. "Planet X" is a designation given temporarily to any new planet with no name. It does not refer to a specific planet, and once a planet is given a name, 'Planet X' is discarded as a title. Several planets, including Pluto, have been referred to as "Planet X."Supporters of the Nibiru Cataclysm Theory sometimes claim that "Planet X" is NASA's method of keeping "Nibiru," a mythical, large planet-like object, secret, as part of a cover up. There is no scientific foundation for this "theory."

no Pluto the dog was not named after the planet Pluto.
