Basically, a pinch harmonic is a method of performing an artificial harmonic.

This is more correct. There are other ways of getting artificial harmonics. Pinch harmonics are just one of them.

A pinch is a type of artificial harmonic sounded by choking up on your pick and striking the string with the pick and immediately slightly touching it with your thumb in one continous motion. Kinda hard to describe in writing.

This is very different than a taped or touch harmonic in which a string is fretted very lighly and plucked which produces a note chimey with overtones rather than the fundamental pitch.
