The image formed by a plane mirror is always virtual (meaning that the light rays do not actually come from the image), upright, and of the same shape and size as the object it is reflecting.

Interference is the more general concept which refers to the phenomenon of waves interacting whereas Diffraction' usually refers to the spreading wave pattern from a finite-width aperture.
