In regards to the difference between the various emerald cuts, basically they are all one and the same. This cut, lets call it the "emerald cut", is a classic that has been around for a very very long time and was as the name suggests initially created for emeralds. The idea was that the cut emphasizes the colour of a stone rather then go for brilliance and flash. Emerald isn't a particularly brilliant or flashy stone due to the fact that it usually has alot of inclusions in it. These inclusions dampen the brilliance and instead, emeralds are usually cut for the colour. Its probably become more a "style" of cut and there are subtle variations on the theme but they pretty much all share the standard stepped crown and pavilion. So when you see "Emerald Cut", "Traditional Emerald Cut", "Stepped Cut", etc, they are pretty much talking about the same thing but bear in mind that there may be subtle differences between then. Generally they have three steps on the crown and three on the pavilion. Some larger stones may have more. The angles that are used on a particular stone when it is being cut will vary as well depending on such things has the type of stone it is, darkness/saturation of colour, available material (a shallow or deep piece of stone), etc.
