Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Yes, 4th Gen is a general term that includes a lot, among them reactor types that uses different decay chains then uranium. Energy amplifiers uses a controlled decay chain by way of inserting protons and Thorium reactors uses the fact that Thorium has a different decay-path then uranium. So you are right, no need for a particle accelerator.

Integral Fast Reactor appears to be a type of breeder.
