2 different things. Projector headlights refer to the type of lens used in the headlights. They are more focused beams of light compared to reflector style lenses in 99% of the headlights in cars. HID's are high intensity discharge and refer to the light source. HID's are more intense then your standard halogen bulb. If you're going to get HID's, then make sure you use them in a projector lens so that you don't blind everyone.
