Is Irish Gaelic (Gaeilge ) the same as Erse or is there a difference?

Erse is an ambiguous term. It is used to mean Irish Gaelic (cf.: https://www.ethnologue.com/language/gle) but was also used for Scottish Gaelic.
The word is no longer used with the latter meaning but if you find it older texts it might apply to Scottish, not Irish Gaelic.

If Erse is for Scotish gaelic, yes
