joint state refers to sensor readings like actual position, velocity and effort.

A position controlled joint is a joint that can be commanded with joint position references. A similar reasoning applies to velocity- and effort-controlled joints.

A controllable joint typically reports its state (read from joint) and accepts motion commands (write to joint).

From the ROS wiki.

The joint element describes the kinematics and dynamics of the joint and also specifies the safety limits of the joint.

Basically, it is a way of keeping track of the kinematics of the robot for simulation as well as for path planning.
