Do a search and you shall find out.
But basically hub adapters bolt onto the hub and the wheel bolts onto them while spacers are just a washers and sit on being wedged between the hub and wheel. In order to convert E-series to AU-onwards offset, you cannot use spacers as the standard studs are not long enough - hub adapters are the only option.
