Procedure cache is the old name for the plan cache.
Plan cache - cache of compiled query plans so that the optimiser doesn't have to regenerate them
Data cache - cache of data pages so that they don't have to be read off disk (slow) every single time they're needed.

Just to add to what Gail said. They're both part of the buffer pool...
