Are you making up these new terms?
Polymorphism means the ability to take multiple forms and I guess that in a way you could apply the term as you do but since they are different things, why would you want to do so.

If you overload the term polymorphism to mean additional things, you're only confusing the different techniques IMO. Type casting is type casting, generic programming is generic programming and overloading is overloading. All these techniques have a name, why invent new ones?
