What do you mean by that question? Where do you see similarities between those two terms?

I think they are both used for different tasks. As far as I am aware, Selenium is a testing tool used for testing web applications.

Yes, Selenium is a user-interface testing tool (I've started using it a bit in the last month). More generally, it does browser automation, but probably the main use of that is for testing. So I suspect the question was intended to be "can Selenium be used to test applets"?

Unfortunately I don't know the answer. A bit of searching suggests that out of the box, no, it can't. But http://docs.codehaus.org/display/FEST/Selenium suggests it might be possible integrate with other tools to get the job done.
