Hi brothertruffle880
as none has come onboard yet, I did some reading and am surprised how the words you asked about Events and projects differ so much from my video editors Cyberlink  PDD to your FC 10.
To me a project is an unpolished-unfinished multimedia file saved while still in editing, but in FC it seems to be a lot more involved,
I don't believe there is a simple straight forward answer to your question.
Here is an interesting piece from the User Manual
Video Finishing Workflows Using Final Cut Pro ( includes a few Venn-diagrams?)

How Final Cut Pro X organizes data
Final Cut Pro X (FCP-X henceforth) has four major data groups:
Projects
Events
Clips
Keywords
This is how the last three relate to each other

I'd refer to the PDF manual
About Final Cut Pro
Libraries
In Final Cut Pro X 10.1, your events are organized within libraries. Events contain both
projects and clips.
Libraries
Final Cut Pro X 10.1 builds on the library concept used in applications such as Aperture
and tailors it to professional video post-production workflows.
You can think of a library as a self-contained unit of work such as a production or a job.

And entirely XML

Events and Projects

Does that help
