What is the difference? They both have espresso, they both have steamed milk? Is it that Capuccino has frothed milk on the top?

You are correct a cappucino has more froth. I have included some recipes below.

Mocha Hazelnut Cappuccino
Calls for:

half an ounce of mocha (chocolate)
half an ounce of hazelnut
1, 2, or 3 shots of espresso
steamed and frothed milk.

Depending on whether you want a latte or a cappuccino:
(latte more milk than froth, cappuccino more froth than milk)

12 oz, calls for one shot of espresso, half an oz of mocha, half of hazelnut
16 oz, two shots of espresso, 1 oz of mocha, 1 oz of hazelnut
20 oz, three shots of espresso, 1 and a half oz, mocha and hazelnut

After you've decided what size you would like, put it together with the flavors and steamed milk. If you like strong coffee Cappuccino is better, because it has less milk and vice versa.

Caffe Latte
Add steamed milk (150-170 F) to a freshly drawn shot of espresso. Finish with a quarter inch of foamed milk. NOTE: Some like to add the shot of espresso last. Pour slowly into the center of the cup. If desired, sprinkle with chocolate or cinnamon.[

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
