As far as I know, the main differences between these three terminologies is as follows:

-Overriding replaces superclass functionality entirely using an identical method name and parameters and should be annotated.

-Overloading is when you take an existing method and essentially define it again, but using different parameters which Java sees as a completely different method.

-Polymorphism is when you extend the base functionality of a superclass. You give some base functionality to the child classes and then the child classes can develop their own behaviors.
