Is Aramid the same as Kevlar®? What are the differences between them?

The term "aramid" is short for "aromatic polyamide". Para-Aramid fibers are man-made high-performance fibers, with molecules that are characterized by relatively rigid polymer chains.

Kevlar® is the most well-known Para-Aramids, which was invented by DuPont and trademarked in 1973.
