Clarification Please: If-statement VS Switch-statement

I just need some clarification. Are the if-statement and the switch-statement technically interchangeable? If I have a problem that I am solving, I could use either one and then it is just a matter of knowing when to use one versus the other. Is this correct?

Use switch to interact with User or major decisions, use if for fast reasonings in code.

when you use if, you could put more conditions to solve your problem like or || and && , so you can put more variables, when you use switch, your datas are more static, like case 0, case 1 and so on, so i think if more flexible to use conditionals
