Plugin dwa_local_planner uses path_distance_bias/goal_distance_bias/occdist_scale, but base_local_planner uses pdist_scale/gdist_scale/occdist_scale with the same semantics. the configuration for some robots, as Turtlebot : it uses base_local_planner but sets dwa_local_planner parameters.

Something similar happens with other parameters min_in_place_rotational_vel/min_in_place_vel_theta or max_rotational_vel/max_vel_theta

so which ı used parameter names are important for planners ?

This is where namespaces are very useful, when setting the parameters, say in a launch file you can group things

<group ns="some-namespace"> <param ....> ... </group>

This way, even if some parameters have similar names, every node gets the right params
