A thread is a process, a core is a.. well... a piece of a processor that can run a single thread at any given time. A hyperthreaded core (or just hyperthread) is a core more or less split in half... a quasi-core or half core of sorts. The hyperthread is mostly on the software side and can be enabled/disabled through the BIOS generally. Basically the only reason why it exists is intel decided they wanted another way to do power saving... when a processor is being used more than 50% as a whole, its sometimes better to just disable the hyperthreading option.

Mind you, the interactions between a program, the operating system, the processor, and processor cores is pretty complicated... What is better and what is not is greatly dependent on all of those interactions as a whole.
