स्तुति, स्तोत्रम्, स्तवन - These words are formed by same root and these mean - eulogy, song/hymn of praise. These generally praise the particular Deity or form. 

श्लोक refers to a particular stanza, a particular verse, it can be of a स्तोत्र or any other Sanskrit text

For example, the Shiva Panchakshara Stotram has 5 shlokas. 

There may be more details but this is basically what I know.

Hope this helps 🙏

🙏, full Vishnu sahasranama is stotra.

 

Only 'Rama Rama Rameti, Rame Raame Manorame.......' is shloka
