Pivot pins refer to pins that have a special end configuration (e.g spherical end) that allows this feature to be used as a cam profile, such as a detent pin.
A detent pin refers to pins that have a mechanical feature that prevents motion until this feature is released. One simple example is a pin that has a spring loaded ball pressed into a hole along its length. The pin cannot be disassembled until the ball is pressed into the body of the pin, allowing the pin to slide free.
