AOSP is an original ROM unmodified as Google intended it to be.

AOKP is based on AOSP but has some slight modifications but not modified to the extent of CM (Cyanogen)

As to if they are better or not well that is a matter of opinion, in terms of performance yeah all AOSP, AOKP and CM ROM's will run smoother and faster than a Sense ROM but there are plenty of people who enjoy the functionality of a Sense based ROM and those who don't.

It's not really about the Samsung/Sense apps more about the whole "layer" that i.e. Samsung/HTC put over the basic rom, (touchwiz and sense in the case of samsung/htc).

So if you'd take those layers/apps away you would just have the basis which is just AOSP.

Personally, AOKP is better as it takea some influence from CyanogenMod, which is THE most popular ROM available for devices

No. AOKP ROMs are like any other ROM; they can be flashed from any recovery compatible with your phone.
