WS2812 is simply the 2811 chip but with it embedded into a 5V LED module rather than being external to the LED. No idea on any of the other stuff.

We don't know what strip it is that you have exactly but with 2812 each led package is 1 pixel which is 3 channels. Power injection will be required for certain if you are daisy chaining from 1 strip to the next. 5V isn't very tolerant to voltage drop.
