the difference as I can figure it is xkill will kill the "window" process that is displayed on your GUI desktop... it won't necessarily kill the actual process though..
I have found when my xmms locks up, when I had the kjofol skins active, xkill would kill the X-process and clear up my desktop, but xmms itself would still be running in the background, and I'd have to still kill (killall -9 xmms) to clean up the hidden processes.
