As far as I understand....

Traction Control (TC) = Stop the wheel spinning when accerlerate
Anti-lock Break System (ABS) = Stop the wheel locking when breaking
Stability Control (SC) = Able to apply 1 front break to counter oversteer or 1 rear break to counter understeer

now... E36 has ASC+T, but is it that we got in E36 are all the 3 above combined??

What does the "A" makes the ASC different from other SC in other brands?

Though ASC+T means Automatic Stability Control + Traction it is not an automatic stability control as currently understood. BMW calls their true stability control DSC, Dynamic Stability Control. ASC is an enhanced traction control system as described here. Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) is a suspension control system which goes beyond the single components of Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Cornering Brake Control (CBC) and Automatic Stability Control + Traction (ASC + T). For more info on DSC go here.
