You're right about the hang-clean - the lift starts with the bar around the thighs. Without the "hang" it's supposed to start on the floor.

My take on the "power clean" is that it involves making the catch with a minimal dip of the body. A regular "clean" is catching the weight in a full squat and then performing a front squat to get back to the standing position.
