The big difference is in the effect of the techniques, and Genjutsu is illusionary, and thus the effect is not real. Whereas Ninjutsu is a straightforward attack, which directly hits you. However, Genjutsu allows you to manipulate the flow of chakra to the brain of your opponent, and you can meddle with his senses, causing illusions and mental trauma by disrupting their normal ability of sensing. The Second Mizukage has stated that genjutsu falls under the category of Yin. Although illusions do not cause you physical pain, it has been shown that mental torture/trauma, can cause pain to yourself too, which would inadvertently also shake you out from Genjutsu. That being said, there are several ways to combat genjutsu and break out of it.
One way, probably the most 'hax or cheat' way or simplest way is to stop the flow of chakra in your body, and then apply an even stronger power/chakra to disrupt the flow of the caster's chakra, which is disrupting yours. A bit repetitive, but meh Anyways, this way is called Kai, and has been shown by a few.As shown by Chiyo and Sakura, they were able to break Naruto free from Itachi's genjutsu, by flowing their own chakra into Naruto's chakra, disrupting the flow of itachi's chakra, which is disrupting Naruto's flow of chakra, and thus, effectively breaking the illusion. Also, Kirabi has also been seen cooperating with his tailed beast, and the tailed beasts inserts its chakra into the jinchuuriki, and thus, breaking their master out of the genjutsu.
Genjutsu is rare, and hard to use, and as said by Jiraiya, only a certain few are able to use it because they have the talent for it. It requires a lot of chakra control, and 'intelligence', which made Naruto not suitable for it. It is apparently the most complex out of the basic techniques, and requires great skill to put it to good use. However, users of genjutsu have achieved fame in their area of specialty, being skilled in it, like Itachi and Kurenai. As seen from Shisui's MS Kota Amatsukami, you seem to be able to manipulate others, and control them, to do things against their will. Also, you can brainwash the opponent with genjutsu, inserting certain *cough* stuff into the mind, and confusing him/her. Tobi has been shown doing this to Yagura >_>
Genjutsu is performed by a ninja when him/her releases their chakra flow through the cerebral nervous system, put simply, the brain of their opponent to control their mind's chakra flow, thereby affecting their five senses in a crude way, which would cause their senses to be meddled, and thus cannot notice things properly. Special abilities like the Uchiha clan's Sharingan or with high intelligence have an easier time executing and countering genjutsu, as detail is key to Genjutsu, and without it, it is close to impossible to perform it well and execute it with skill. Those under the influence of genjutsu will either appear to be unconscious or continue to move around under the pretence of the genjutsu, or become subconscious, causing minor drooling, and blank looks. A useful way to do this is to fake the environment and cause the victim to see a flat plain where there is a steep cliff, and if they walk around, they might just fall to the pit of doom
Genjutsu disrupts the process throughout the Prosencephalon structure of the brain, and thus, humans, dogs and other species of mammal are therefore all affected by genjutsu. Insects, on the other hand, being rather absymal and stupid, lack such a structure to their brains, being inferior somehow, and so inadvertently, do not get affected by Genjutsu sadly, giving the Aburame a some sort of advantage against genjutsu.
Did reference to Narutopedia for the last 2 paragraphs of course u.u I would be too lazy. If you prefer a shorter, more readable version of Baldy's Genjutsu Explanation, feel free to speak your mind : D
