Hi boys. Can anyone out there tell me if there is any difference between Receiver extension wire & servo extension wire, I have some servo extension wires with plug on ends & wondering if I can use one of them for a receiver extension wire they look the same to me.

No problems extending a servo wire, but there are potential problems in theory extending an ESC wire.  ESCs often have a BEC incorporated, and extending the wire carrying the common ground line can give rise to some unexpected results due to the ground line voltage of the rest of the system fluctuating under load.
As to naming it, yes, its three wires with a plug at one end and a socket at the other, so whatever its called, it is the same thing.
