Starter is a base for making bread that uses a wild yeast fermentation. You see it with sourdough and Amish friendship breads. Gives the bread a very distinct flavor and texture. Starter will keep growing and growing forever, if you let it. Some bread companies have been using starters that were started more than 100 years ago, and they keep right on growing it.
Kneading is the method of pushing and stretching the dough to make sure that it rises properly. Some breads require some fairly vigorous kneading, and some don't require any at all. Depends on what you're looking for.
