Thanks for the explanations.
H265 is a codec spec. HEVC is another name for it. H265 and HEVC are the same thing.
x265 is the open source free implementation of H265 and is just one way to encode video into H265 for free. There are other H265 encoders. NVidia, for example, has an H265 encoder built into its GPU / drivers called HVENC which is another implementation of H265. Videos encoded by x265, HVENC, or any other H265 encoder are just H265 and any codec that can play back H265 should decode them the same.
UHD Bluray is H265/HEVC. It is encoded by some encoder which is probably not x265.
