t-cell lymphoma, non-hodgkin's lymphoma - what are they, are they the same thing?

Not really: Non-hodgkin's lymphomas are a very large group of diseases. Lymph cell can be called t cells or b cells based on surface proteins. T cell lymphomas are just one group of non-hodgkins lymphomas. There are also several types of those tcell lymphomas.
