What are the differences between all the rebranded firefoxes? I know that Seamonkey and Firefox are actually kind of different, but are they all different or simply renamed?

actually semonkey and firefox are completely different.
as for the others, swiftfox is a modded version of firefox 3/2 that seems to run faster and smoother then firefox.
Iceweasel is debians contribution due to the copyright issues surrounding firefox, and its stripped of a few tools that are not really that important...

swiftweasel is a combination of iceweasel and swiftfox.

I just installed Swiftweasel 3.02pre. All I have to say is wow! Much, much faster than regular Firefox!

Some people seem to swear by Swiftweasel, et. al. but I've never had much luck with them. There always seems to be problems with profiles, extensions, and plugins, so I stick with the 'official' build.
