I made some research however there seems to be a conflict with this animal's translation to my language and the original. So I couldn't find it. Do you mind helping me out ?

Some resources say pufferfish or Porcupinefish. Are these the same thing ?

This is a Northern pufferfish. It is called Sphoeroides maculatus.

You can confirm this on FishBase.

I'm no expert in the field, so I can't identify the fish in your video; but it seems that pufferfish belong to the family Tetraodontidae, while porcupinefish are of the family Diodontidae. So, no, they are not the same thing.
