Are streams stored as blocks?

I want to know the difference between a block and a stream and when should I store data as stream and when I store data as a block (if there is such thing as storing data as block)?.. I'm probably confused with this so please don't hesitate to write a long very explanatory answer

Indeed, there is no such thing as storing data as a block. The blocks are the underlying mechanism for validating and ordering all transactions – streams, assets, permissions, etc... If your use case is for general data storage and retrieval, you should definitely use the streams APIs.
