Also question is, are the Torah and Pentateuch the same thing?

Sometimes Torah can refer to the written and oral Law. The Hebrew word towrah means "instruction, direction, law". Pentateuch is the Greek, and therefore usually Christian, way of referring to those first five books. In Greek, "Penta" means "five" and "teuchos" means "book, case [for books]".

Who wrote the books of the Pentateuch?

Mosaic authorship is the Jewish and Christian tradition that Moses was the author of the Torah, the first five books of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament.
