A layer mask screens out part of a layer. You use a layer mask to make a part

Let's say you have a picture of a chair in a room. You want to put the chair in
a layer over another picture. So you move the picture of the chair over the
other picture, then select just the chair, then save the selection as a layer
mask so that you don't see the room--only the chair.
You can put a layer mask on an adjustment layer, if you want.
An adjustment layer is a command. For example, you can make a Curves adjustment
layer. This creates a Curves command (just like using Image->Adjust->Curves)
that affects everything beneath the adjustment layer.
