The half-back is the primary rusher on an offense, and had a main job of gaining yardage by running the ball, or running a route and making receptions. Half-backs tend to be small (5'8"-5'10") and agile. The fullback typically runs much less than the halfback, and primarily blocks for the halfback and protects for the quarterback. Some fullbacks also catch passes well. Fullbacks tend to be around 6'0", and are bulky and powerful.
one blocks, one runs
Usually the difference between the 2 running back- halfback are the running back gets to be a receiver more than the fullback. The running back also gets to block more. The halfback or the tailback gets to run a lot more balls than the running back.
The quarterback is the director of the offense and handles how the ball is advanced. The halfback is basically tasked with running the ball or catching it out of the backfield.
Backs are called backs because they are in back of the line of scrimmage. In the old tee-formation, the farthest offensive guy from the line of scrimmage was the fullback, because he was all the way at the end of the tee. Similarly, the halfback was positioned halfway between the fullback and the line of scrimmage, and the quarterback was positioned one-fourth of the way between the line of scrimmage and the fullback. Other formations, of course, are used these days, but the old names for the positions has persisted.
Generally, fullbacks are bigger than halfbacks and spend more time blocking than actually running with the football. In a two-back offense, the fullback lines up directly behind the quarterback and in front of the halfback and will often be the lead blocker in the running game. Fullbacks are utilized more in a power-bases running offense and might see more extensive rushing attempts in short-yardage situations. In today's game, fullbacks are often utilized as pass-catchers much more than they used to be.

football boots are for football :).
In the earliest days of American Football, the backfield consisted of four players behind the linemen. The one farthest back from the line was called the fullback (fully back from the line). Two players were positioned halfway between the linemen and the fullback and were called halfbacks. The man closest to the line was positioned one quarter of the way between the linemen and the fullback and hence became the quarterback
