There are no differences between Apertura and Clausura. It´s just that Apertura opens the season and Clausura closes it (Apertura means "opening", and Clausra means "closure"). Therefore promotions and relegations occur after Clausura and not after Apertura. But, as far as the championship is concerned they're the same.

The closest thing to Champions League is Copa Libertadores. It's played from February till July. (I think this year is gonna end a little bit late due to the WC)
There is no equivalent to UEFA Cup since Copa Conmebol was discontinued a couple of years ago.
