The general term is called a winner. If it is hit on specific shots, it can receive specific names. Such as on a serve, it is called an ace. If it is hit on the return of serve, it's called a return winner.

It depends on if the kicking team player was 10 yards past the line of scrimmage and also on whether it was a punt or kick off. If it was a kick off and the player was 10 yards past the line of scrimmage, then it would be a touchdown. If the player was not 10 yards past the line of scrimmage, then it is a penalty. If it is a punt the ball is placed where the player hit the ball.
