A transaction is the general container of anything which happens on the blockchain – each contains one or more of: permissions change, asset issuance, asset transfer, stream creation, stream item, etc...

A stream item is one particular type of thing that can appear in a transaction. Generally speaking, if you are building an application, you can think more about the stream items than the transactions, although you should understand that, behind the scenes, everything is taking place in a transaction.
