As have rerad where some used that term same, others said that calvinist can refer to those holding to reformed sotierology and even Confession, but Reformed holds also to allof Covenant theology?

Yes, some see the terms "Calvinist" and "Reformed" as synonymous. Historically, however, Reformed is more encompassing and includes covenant theology and paedobaptism. That is why some Baptists prefer to be called Calvinistic Baptists vs. Reformed Baptists.

Si a Calvinistic Baptist would be one who would agree with refomed on salvation proper, but disagree on who getsbaptism and when, what it means, how church is to be governed etc?

So would so called reformed Baptistsbe between those 2 groups, as accepting the 1689 Confession, unlike many Calvinistic Baptists?

Perhaps one of the Baptist members could answer your question re: LBCF 1689. In my experience, most Calvinistic Baptists adhere to the LBCF.
