Yes, this is my understanding.

Could one say Mindfulness is not a form of meditation, it just means to remember.

Re: Why do I keep hearing that Mindfulness is a Form of Meditation?

To me, when you're meditating you are practising mindfulness. The two cannot be separated.

Vipassana is not a meditation technique, it's a quality to be cultivated

He may of been an Arahant, but he's still human and humans make mistakes

Re: Bringing the mind to stillness

If you want stillness them you want to practice Samatha where you train your mind to notice thoughts and let them be. Vipassana is not a practice, it's a quality of mind to be cultivated, the quality of wisdom.

Re: equanimity for non-mask wearers

Notice the irritation, watch it arise, persist and then subside.

Focus on the irritation, not the person.

Re: Discuss about Jhanas means it is show off?

Possibly but not necessarily. If someone you can attain Jhana is asked a question then answering that question is not showing off. Someone who can attain Jhana may also want to discuss it in order to help other people in their practice.
