#1 A cordless drill
just what it says it is. Works good for making holes

#2 A cordless Drill Driver
generally has a slow speed and a clutch. The slow speed is more controllable for driving the fasteners to a specific depth and the clutch allow one to set effectively how much torque is applied to the fastener

#3 A cordless Impact Driver
most I have seen have a 1/4" hex quick release chuck. Allows faster changes of bits. The impact value also provides for much greater torque so a larger screw or even lag can be driven.

#4 A cordless impact wrench
similar to an impact driver but intended to be used with sockets (like you would use with a ratchet). Made to remove or tighten nuts and bolts. Generally larger and imparts more torque than an impact driver.

imparts a hammering action along with the rotational action. Yes, for drilling into concrete and such. Many can be set to use just the rotational action or the hammering action. This way you can use it just like any other drill or you can use it as a power chisel.

Also, less chance of screw/lag heads from camping off

The best thing about an impact driver is: if the bit bogs down, the tool doesn't swing around and try to wrench your shoulder out of its socket!
