What's the difference between a question and a discussion post?

The main difference is that if you ask a question, you require an answer. If you post a question and no one replies to it, your post will appear under the 'Can you help' feed on the home page. 

"Questions" also provide the ability for others to vote up, or suggest a correct answer and, as the original poster, you can mark a reply as a "Verified Answer".

Posting a "Discussion" means that you don't require an answer, but want to start a conversation with other community users but you don't require a resolution to an issue.
