Usually Specialist and Administrator are the same thing but Specialists usually refers to a less experienced admin. Usually, it all really depends on what the HR in that particular company decides to use as a title.

For the rest of the things, it varies from job to job, why don't you go on Monster.com and look at the different postings for those jobs? Salary is pretty wide also, a Network Admin will get more than just a Tech, usually by 10-20k a year more, sometimes more depending on the position. A starting PC Tech would get around 30-40k a year depending on the location and company, a starting Network Admin will get 50-70k, and sometimes higher if they have a good specialty like UNIX admin and experience. Usually but not always, Network Admins do start working as a regular computer tech.
