You answered your own question

"Pork Hocks
Pork hocks are cut from picnic shoulder and are similar to pork shank cross
cuts."

Similar, but not the same.

Afaik, ham hocks would be cured, pork hocks are fresh?

I don't use cured hocks. It's fresh, uncured pork.

Ham hocks are the ankles, all four of them. A ham shank is the narrow end
of a whole Ham, above the ankle, rear end only. A shank has a lot of meat
on it and one bone, a hock has two or three little nuggets of meat and many
bones.
