I know spyglass is used for RTL code checking while lint is also sort of code checking but is there a difference between these two?

lint is a process of checking the code which you have mentioned while spyglass is a tool which enables that process.

I can say from my experience that Spyglass is one of the best Linting tool available. You must use it if it is available. At least it is much better than the Cadence Lint tool.
