I downloaded the free SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) to use on my laptop, but when I connect to a server it says "MyName SQL Express" so I'm not sure if I am using SSMS or SQL Express. Which one am I using?

Also, which implementation of SQL is used here? Is it Microsoft SQL Server or is it T-SQL (which is a Microsoft version of SQL)?

SSMS is just a client app used to connect to a SQL Server. Assuming I understand your question, you should be using SSMS to connect to your local SQLEXPRESS instance (If it is installed).

T-SQL is the version of SQL used by SQL Server, so as long as you are connected to a SQL Server, you will be using T-SQL to query it.

Microsoft SQL Server is the product name and T-SQL is the implementation of SQL in it.
