It could be! That or a closely related species. They all have similar care, though.
As far as your insect problem... That is scale. Scale is quite difficult to get rid of. You must remove anything that you can by hand, first, since they seal themselves to your plant. This renders chemical treatment ineffective until you break that seal. Once you do that, you can treat with the insecticide of your choice.
