    What is the difference between differential line transceiver & differential line driver and receiver pairs ?
    Line transceiver is used as translator in either unidirectional or bidirectional; whereas line driver receiver pairs is used to produce differential output and convert back to single-ended at the output. Am I correct ?

    yes, a transciever is a transmitter-receiver combo, compared to a line driver it might have something more inside, like frame buffers and flow control mechanisms.
