Somebody is pulling your leg, I think. For an initial introduction, I think #2 is off. To give real simple answer to real simple question, here goes:

1) A bomb is a program that periodically "wakes up", checks the clock, and if the time is right, the fuse is set, and it executes something really nefarious.  It does not have to be a virus, and usually is not, for the one who creates them is more often some disgruntled employee who is so angry at a company that he (masculine) leaves them such a program as a going away present.

3) Stealthing does apply more to viruses.  It is an attribute some of them have, like the stealth planes do, of having some features that help it to hide from radar, or in computerese, to hide from users and programs, up to and including anti-virus programs.  Think of them as programs that are hidden from you, where even if you tell explorer to unhide all programs, they will still be hidden from you. That is why they've been given that extra description of being stealthed. Like a Romulan. And like a Romulan, it eventually comes to pass that the good guys learn how to see even the steatlh-hidden ones.

I just googled your #2, in curiousity, and only got two hits. I think this is more like the Iraqi wargames, and has nothing to do with computers at all. Best guess:

2) Warhead Virus == WMD
