They are similar and some people use them as the same, but the main difference is regurgitation occurs before digestion begins. This is usually do to husbandry(temp/stressful) but can occasionally be a medical problem. In my experience it can be solved with what people above have recommended.

Vomiting occurs after the food has reached the stomach and has started to be digested. This is somewhat more serious because the snake loses amino acids and more. It also can be due to husbandry but it has a higher chance than regurg does to be something medical, in my experience.

I would follow what others have suggested but if that doesn't work then have your snake checked by a vet.
