What is the difference between an external solid state drive and external hard drive?

Is the T5 compatible with my PC and Mac? (inc. ports)

The Samsung T5 is compatible with Windows 7, Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks), Android 4.4 (KitKat), or higher. PC must have USB ports.

Can I run my OS with this drive?

Yes, but this is dependent on the motherboard/system. Using an external drive to run OS needs to be configured via the system BIOS settings and may not be available on all motherboards. Please refer to your PC or motherboard manual for instructions.
