what is vodou ? 

Vodou is Hatian religion that came from many places around africa.
Vodun has been around for about 6000 years.

What is the difference between voodoo,vodou and vodun ?  

When saying voodoo we are talking about Louisiana voodoo which came from africa with the slaves.
Vodou is Hatian when we are talking about vodou we are talking about Hatian vodou.
Vodun is when we are talking about the african vodun which all the others came from.

Vodun has not been around for six thousand years. More around the time of two hundred. When the slaves came from Africa, they had to pretend to believe in Christianity so they dressed up their religion, included saints, and called it Christianity to white men. 

The name of the African practice to which you mean would either be Hoodoo, or Conjure. Generally the same thing although it would depend on who you ask.
