Sorry if this has been asked before, but what differentiates being rooted, having the bootloader unlocked, and s-off?

With S-OFF you can flash kernels in recovery and flash modems.
With bootloader unlocked/ S-ON it blocks you from flashing kernels in recovery and flashing modems

Well you can flash with S-ON but it usually has to be done through ADB/fastboot on your computer. S-OFF gives you read right access to the devices NAND flash memory. It allows you to mount all partitions including /system in write mode while the OS is running. You can flash unsigned boots, HBoot images, permanently root your device, ect. You essentially have more control over your device. Gives you almost complete access to everything at any time.
