Enums and arrays are totally different concepts.

is enums and array are the same?

Why do you think they have different names?

Why do you think they exist in the language?
the idea behind an array is to hold multiple values. in c++ unless you are smart about it they have to be the same value. an enum(eration) is just really an abstraction. its really just giving ints meaningful names. for example:

1
2
3
4
5
6
namespace op {
    enum operator {
        plus = '+',
        minus = '-',
    };
}


op::op foo = op::plus; // can be translated to int foo = whatever_the_int_value_of_+_is
