Pfile  can be   initxxx.ora that is  Text / Asci form and the SPfile is in the 
Binary form to start the database.  You can create spfile from  initxxx.ora 
file and vice versa. at a time you will use one to start the database, either 
spfile or the initxxx.ora file,   in the pfile path.
Hope I am able to explain the difference.
