Are you asking if these two are different?  Yes they are.  38 spl is a rimmed cartridge while the 38 super is rimless.  The .38 spl is also longer.  The two are not interchangeable.

Actually, .38 Super is "semi-rimless".  It has a small rim to the case.  Nonetheless, they still are not interchangeable.
