This might be a dumb question......
but, is there a difference between "bind off" and "cast off", or are they
the same thing?

Cast off, bind off same thing just as you suspected, but better to ask
than to wonder.

FWIW, even though I was taught to call it "cast-off" way back when I
learned to knit, I switched to "bind off" when learned that term through
machine knitting. I just never did like the associations of throwing it
away that come with the term "cast-off"! ;)
