what is the difference between a small block rear suspension kit and a small block rear suspension kit. Can a big block kit go on a vette with a small block?

Welcome to the forum. The two differences that I can think of off the top of my head are the spring rates and the diameter of the sway bars. Plus the big block comes with a rear sway bar while the small block doesn't unless you get the Gymkhana suspension.

If you're talking about the coil-overs, probably could but the spring rate might be a little stiff.  Curious as to the brand/maker of them.
