Q

"Are offensive and defensive holding the same thing?"

A
They are similar... not exactly the same. Example, for defensive holding, if a DB holds or pulls a WR that is trying to block his teammate, and the holding obstructs the WR from doing his job; that is where it will be called.
Offensively, an OL his hands or arms to restrict a DL movement or alter the defender’s path or angle of pursuit. Same for WR's blocking DB's.
