Bootloop is simply an error in boot process so the device shutdowns and tries to bootup again but continually.. the process of getting stuck, restarting, getting stuck again etc is simply called bootlooping

Fastboot is a protocol that can be used to re-flash partitions on your device. It's amongst the  tools that comes with the Android SDK, that can serve as an alternative to the Recovery Mode for doing installations and updates.

Bootloaders on phones is similar to BIOS on PC.. It basically holds the instructions to boot operating system kernel. It starts before any piece of software on your device i.e from the moment you power on your device - See more at: https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-9221.ht...5VVeQ.dpuf
