You can change the terminology and rename modules. To avoid confusion check the module icon which is unalterable.

The Resources module provides essential information to manage resources both at project and portfolio levels but also can give an insight into resource utilization during a sprint.

You can actually use this view to manage resources across the whole organization.

Using different effort modes you can analyze resource consumption, currently utilized resources as well as the forecasted availability.

The  "Perfect match" feature will help you in leveling your resources by suggesting available assignees both at individual and team levels.
