Crawing refers to google bots visiting or crawling your website. indexing means the crawlers will store or index the data from the website in a cache for future reference.

Crawling Is When Bots (Crawlers) Crawls Your Site And Checks Your Complete Site
Then It Sends Crawl Results Back To The Server And ALGO Decides Whether To Index Your Page Or Not..

The leading search engines, such as Google, Bing and Yahoo!, use crawlers to find pages for their algorithmic search results. Pages that are linked from other search engine indexed pages do not need to be submitted because they are found automatically....

...Search engine crawlers may look at a number of different factors when crawling a site. Not every page is indexed by the search engines. Distance of pages from the root directory of a site may also be a factor in whether or not pages get crawled...

Here is a guide that should answer all your questions about crawling and indexing: A Technical SEO Guide to Crawling, Indexing and Ranking
