Hi,

About Meta Data - https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.api_meta.meta/api_meta/meta_intro.htm

Metadata is a data of data for example - The defination of Object is save as a Metadata. As you know we are saving our data in Object so in the same way objects are save in the form of data which is called metadata.

Custom Setting - Custom Setting is like a object but having some retriction and some benfits. Mostly Custom setting are used to save configurate data for our project, So user can change the value in production and our code will behave in that way.

Custom setting provide fast access to retrive data.
