No. Scuba refers to any form of Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus. An aqualung is a type of scuba equipment, but a rebreather is also technically scuba equipment, as would any other self contained underwater diving rig. However, surface supplied diving is not regarded as scuba.

In common terms "scuba equipment" is often used as a generic term for diving equipment, so as to include non-breathing apparatus, like a diver's mask or fins.

Not necessarily. It just depends on what someone means. Scuba diving is only when you use a scuba tank or cylinder that a diver carries.
