So, Smurf is a broadcast attack (many computers respond to a spoofed
icmp echo request towards a specific host). Where as a LAND is a
packet sent to host A spoofed to be from host A, causing the host to
get confused.

and IP spoofing is not an attack, it is a method for performing
attacks (ie. smurf and land both use this technique)

A good idea when looking up specific vulnerabilities/attacks check
http://cve.mitre.org, and then just 'google' the cve entry.
