There are two ways to get US citizenship:
1. Acquire US citizenship at birth by being born in the USA or having a US citizen parent who qualifies to pass on citizenship by descent. It is called being a "natural born US citizen".
2. Acquire US citizenship later (not at birth) through naturalization.
The ONLY difference between the two is one must be a "natural born US citizen" to be President of the USA.

US citizen could be citizen by birth to US citizen wherever born; or born in US; or naturalized. Domestic-born means specifically those born in the US.

One that was born in the US, the other was born elsewhere, migrated to the US and naturalised as a citizen

Nothing. They are both US citizens.
