They are exactly the same. 1. they are both fallen angels. 2. no demons or fallen angels are gonna be working on their own. And if they all are on the same page, plus the evil being the one who began the rebelion. In other words, all fallen angels follow the devil.
One is a made-up bad guy, and the other is a made-up good guy.
Don't you think it's rather odd that a god would create a perfect "angelic" species, and then create a far less perfect species called humans. Basically the concepts of angels and demons were created by man for two reasons. 1) Give hope to those that live their lives in perfect harmony with the dogma of their religion that they will be rewarded by becoming angels. 2) Deflect blame from the "all good" god of all the bad that happens in this world.

Imagine, if you will, a gorgeous woman walking through the park, the envy of other women, the focus of all the men. She is beauty incarnate. But, as she preens her way through the park she is so conscious of her own self-image that she trips over a kerb and sprawls awkwardly on the grass.
She has become a fallen angel.
And the guy who, instead of helping her, snatches her handbag and runs off is a demon.
But for a more appropriate answer, go check out what Caluvox said. It's right on the mark.
Demons are the powers of this dark world, while fallen angels are the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms ( Aliens ) .fallen angels have their own celestial bodies, therefore they have no need to inhabit bodies. Yet demons seek bodies desperately; and, if need be, they will settle for the bodies of animals.. fallen angels have the ability to fly, but demons can only walk.
Yes, there is a difference. Fallen angels are more powerful than demons. Fallen angels fell from heaven. Demons are the offspring of the fallen angels and human women. They are called "the Nephilim" that Genesis Ch. 6 talks about and can also be found in the gnostic book of Enoch. When these Nephilim died on earth, they became demons.
The first and most infamous spirit to rebel became Satan. " because there is no truth in him," (John 8:44) Revised Standard Version. He began to covet the worship that belongs to the Creator, and then he acted on the desire by setting himself up as a rival god. In this way he made himself "Satan" a word that means "resister," Centuries later, prior to the Flood of Noah,s day, other angels joined Satan forsaking their heavenly position to materialize in human form and dwell on earth. ( Genesis 6:1-4; James 1:13-15). When the flood occurred, the materialized "angels that sinned" apparently returned to the spirit realm. ( 2:Peter 2:4; Genesis 7:17-24) in time they came to be called demons --- Deuteronomy 32:17; " So Jesus healed great numbers of sick folk that evening and ordered many demons to come out of their victims. ( But he refused to allow the demons to speak, because they knew who he was.) Mark 1:34). Living Bible. The disobedient angels now found themselves in a very different situation from the one they had enjoyed before rebelling. Jude 6 reads: " And I remind you of those angels who were once pure and holy, but turned to a life of sin. Now God has them chained up in prisons of darkness, waiting for the judgement day." (Living Bible) God did not allow the demons to enjoy their former privileges in heaven but consigned them to figurative "prisons of darkness". cut off from all spiritual enlightenment.
