Instead of writing a book on the subject (since many others did), I will keep my answer short.

To make it simple, a charged particle creates an electric field. A moving charged particle creates also a magnetic field. Both of them are of the same nature, but not the same.

No.
please be detailed!
Your question is not terribly detailed. I don't know how you expect a detailed response. In any case, pay more attention to the fields themselves than the field lines. The field lines are just a graphical tool for plotting the fields.
