Q: When should you call either of these fouls? What are the general and specific criteria that differentiate these two fouls? Are they interchangeable or do they have their specific circumstances?

A: The main difference between the two is one is normally called for a shooting foul and the other for a non shooting foul.  Illegal use of the hands is normally for a non shooting foul and illegal contact is for a shooting foul.
