Difference between a bitless, sidepull, and hackamore

I am just curious as to what the difference between a bitless bride, a sidepull, and a hackamore is. For the most part they look the same to me. I was thinking about getting a bitless bridle for my guy just for fun as I had really good results riding in a bitless with him once, however I found a sidepull that I really like. The thing is that it looks the same to me as the bitless... So what's the difference, and is one better for a horse that is use to a bit and would only be ridden in one for fun?

Sidepull: mild pressure on nose, easy to turn (because reins are attached as in English bridle), not much of stopping power.

Hackamore (I assume bosal, correct? Not the mechanical one): pressure on nose as well, but more stopping power and turning signals are less clear.

Bitless: pressure on pole and nose.

Between them if you have good control of the horse I prefer sidepull.
