Is electromechanical components the same thing as electronic components?

    No. 

    Not the same. 

    A switch, a transformer, a relay, a light bulb are examples of electrical components. Something with vacuum tubes (from decades ago) is electronic. Something with solid state junctions (generally germanium or silicon) like a diode, a transistor or an integrated circuit is electronic.

    The first kind handles electricity and has moving mechanical parts.  Second kind, no moving mechanical parts.

    No. solid state parts are electronic but electro-mechanical parts have a moving mechanism like a switch, motor, relay, wind turbine...etc.

    No. For something to be classed as "electronic" it must include active semiconductor devices such as transistors or integrated circuits.

    (Or technically valves/tubes which form an active part - though that's then no longer  "solid state" electronics).

    Passive components such as resistors, diodes and capacitors do not count.

    Electromechanical includes such as motors, solenoids, generators etc. - things that use electrical power to control mechanical motion, or generate power from mechanical motion.

    Some things are both - eg. a radio control model "servo" combines an electromechanical system with electronics to control the motor.

    no. electromechanical components are things like relays, solenoids, motors, etc. that have an electric and mechanical component

    electronic components are purely electronic, no mechanical component.
