Machining is the process of taking raw materials and using a milling machine or a lathe machine to turn that material into a product. The difference between a milling machine and lathe machine, is the setup of the spindle. A mill has a spindle that comes down from above the material and a lathe's spindle comes to the material from the side.
CNC stands for computer numeric control. A CNC machine is when the operator uses a computer to move the machine, rather than manual movements. This technique is much faster and is more accurate than manual machines.
