I just want to know if there is a difference when we talk about witness server and FSW.

No deference, Fitness server is used to host a shared folder called FSW.

You will need to clarify your question.
The FSW is created by Exchange, however if the server is NOT an Exchange 2010 server then you will have grant permissions on the FSW host to allow the folder to be created by Exchange.
