Oops, you're right. A Black Russian is Kahlua and vodka. Also

Not quite. In black or white russian Vodka is the main ingredient, here it is specifically Evaporated milk that is main ingredient.

Half and half might be a good substitute, or heavy cream. In all the truth no matter the substituted you'd have to buy it.
kahlúa and cream. I used to call these a Sombrero. I loved them. Add some Amaretto and you have a Toasted Almond. Yum. Loved them both.

Yup. I would remember that by thinking Russian vodka. White meant add cream. I couldn't handle the vodka kick with the sweet Kahlúa. Shots of chilled vodka I could handle.

I can handle vodka in any form. But in all honesty I do not like drinking. My drink of choice is milk or lemonade.
