ILOM provides a user interface to manage the hardware - usually via a seperate controller - allows you to power on / off the machine remotely etc. can be accessed without the installed operating system running if necessary.

System Console - usually means (for want of a better word) the primary terminal of a system (not necessarily locally connected hardware)

The difference between ILOM, ALOM, SC, XSCF is hardware dependent. They're all variations of system controllers and with each comes slightly more options than the last.
