TeX-live is a distribution. LaTeX is a collection of macros designed to
provide an input language for preparing documents. XeTeX and LuaTeX are
"engines", the software that reads in a file prepared with the LaTeX
language and processes it to output as a (these days) pdf file. There
are various combinationg and variations; documentation for these is
better found elsewhre.
The texhax list has been suggested as a better place to ask questions
about *using* LaTeX. Another possibility is a question & answer forum
at https://tex.stackexchange.com . There are questions there about
using bookdown (an applcation about which I know nothing, nor had ever
heard of before you mentioned it), so if you have questions about it,
I believe you can find people there who are familiar with it. Do, please,
read the instructions for new users of the site.
In any event, this tex-live list is not the place for questions about
how to *use* (La)TeX.
