Stupid is not knowing much but dumb has two meanings: stupid [see beginning of sentence] and/or not able to talk!! So no, they are not the same.

All are correct but dumb could also mean you know better but your unable to execute that ( if you have some kind of autism or something)

When used in the same context the meaning is the same. The word dumb can also refer to an inability to speak.

dumb means temporarily incapable of speaking-or something about speaking
stupid means lacking or marked by lack of intellectual activity-not thinking straight or being dumb in the brain.

If someone decides to jump off a very high building without a parachute and thinking that they're gonna survive when they hit a base of concrete then that person is just plain stupid.

If you decide to do 3 front-flips with a monster-truck over a huge hill, but you knew it was a bad thing to do, then you're just plain dumb.

dumb means you can't speak, people started making it mean stupid when people would say stupid things, like they can't talk right.
