I believe the pinwheel bow names says it all. It is shaped like a pinwheel with a flat bow look to it and the firecracker bow has ribbon cuts which are sewn together which are then spiked kinda giving a poofy pom pom look. In my opinion I don't think they are similar.

The instructions you linked are very much like the 'firecracker' bow. I have seen them done with different widths of ribbon, different lengths, and probably more than the eight sections shown in the link. But the idea is the same and you add, subtract, change or whatever suits you.

The 'pinwheel' she linked to is exactly similar to the firecracker bow. It is not the traditional pinwheel you are describing.

so funny you posted this, because I just bought an old hairbow book from the 1990's and it had instructions for that same bow and I thought, that's not a pinwheel, it's a firecracker bow! the difference is this pinwheel lays flat and the firecracker stands up. Its just in how you arrange the ribbon. Same concept though.
