A macro lens is a lens that has a reproduction ratio of greater than 1:1. It more often then not refers to a lens with a large reproduction ratio even though they rarely exceed 1:1.
A tube be it macro or whatever it is called basically extends the lens focal length by a factor of its multiplier.
I am partial to just using a straight lens when I do macro work. I have used extension tubes but mostly when shooting wildlife. For most of my macro type photography you will see me putting on fixed focal length lenses.
