Nmap: Spoofing IP adress (-S option) or using Proxy chains, what's the difference?

No. Scanning through a proxy allows you to scan from the IP of that proxy, and it only works with certain scan types, as you're just tunneling traffic through a proxy server. Connect scans are the ...

What’s the point in using proxychains for an nmap scan when you could use Tor?

I think you misunderstand the words. Proxychains is software. Like using one calculator app instead of another. Tor, the way that you use it, refers mainly to the network. Your Tor client software ...
