MPO= pro or "open"
Adv= MA1 or AM1
Int= MA2, AM2 or Intermediate
Rec= MA3, AM3 or Recreational
Nov=MA4 , AM4 or Novice
There is no such thing as a dumb question.
how would you define novice vs adavanced
That's a big jump. I would say...
Novice: playing for fun, either just starting, or just enjoy the game
Recreational: Good, but needing consistency
Intermediate: Good with constancy
Advanced: Pro, just needing more constancy

This is what PDGA says:

Novice: Beginning and casual players, throws 175-250 feet, makes 3-5 out of 10 putts from 20 feet
Recreational: Played 1-2 years gaining consistency, throw 200-300 feet, makes 4-6/10 putts from 20 feet
Intermediate: Played 2-3 years with inproved consistency, throw 250-350 ft, makes 5-7/10 putts from 20 ft
Advanced: Throw 300-450 feet, makes 5-7/10 putts from 25-30 feet
are you sure?
