Whole numbers are integers. Integers are whole numbers.

The counting numbers are also known as the whole numbers?

This may or may not be true. The set of "counting numbers" may either be defined as all positive integers (1, 2, 3, 4...) or as all non-negative integers (0, 1, 2, 3, 4...). Similarly, the set of "whole numbers" may be defined as all positive integers, all non-negative integers, or as all integers (...-3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3...). It all depends on the definition given for each term.

What numbers are included in integers but not in whole numbers?

What do integers allow you to do that whole numbers do not?

The term "whole numbers" is ambiguous; it may refer either to integers, or only to positive integers (perhaps including zero).

No. Natural numbers may or may not include 0, depending on who you ask (i.e. they can begin 0, 1, 2, 3, … or 1, 2, 3, 4, …), but they don't ever include the negative numbers. However, integers, which are a superset of the natural numbers (i.e. the natural numbers are contained "in" the integers), do include negatives.
