what is the difference between a supervisor password and a bios password

Yes on most desktops. No on most laptops.
The BIOS password comes first - then the Supervisor's Windows password. If you don't do BIOS, you will never get to Windows'.
Unless you are sharing a PC with others and it is in a rather public place with open access - I recommend using neither. Leave both blank if yo8u are the sole user in your own home.
