It surely depends on the circumstances.
Perhaps in some cases a "Visiting Lecturer" is someone not normally on the staff, who comes for one term or one year and serves as a Lecturer. After that, going back to their usual job.
Whereas a "Lecturer" is a regular member of the staff.
In Australia lecturers are paid. Honorary Adjunct Visiting and Emeritus aren’t.
In Australia a visiting lecturer is generally an unpaid position which allows access to the library. Visitors either have a substantive academic rank elsewhere or an equivalent. Jane comes over to do a sabbatical here, Jane is appointed Visiting Senior Lecturer.
Other purposes unpaid
Honorary: retired with former rank or equivalent, they turn up for occasional seminars or coffee with their mates.
Adjunct: substantive external profession or trade, ie surgeon, coder, manager, fine artist
Emeritus: generally only professors (E) equivalent of full professors elsewhere. Like Honoraries but they’re so prolific you can’t stop them publishing full time, or they won a big gong (Nobel, field specifying monograph, etc)
These days you keep publishing or the title goes away. Often this is a way to rope in ERA publications.
