Yes. A rhombus is a special kind of parallelogram. It's a four-sided figure that has all of the characteristics it needs to be called a parallelogram, plus the extra feature that it needs to be called a rhombus.

A parallelogram doesn't need to have all four sides the same length. If they are, then it can also be called a rhombus.

In the same way ... the rhombus doesn't need to have all four angles the same size. If they are, then the rhombus can also be called a square.

NOT ALWAYS. A parallelogram is not always a rhombus. A rectangle is also a parallelogram and not all four sides are of same length. A rhombus must have four sides of equal length like that of a square.

For any bone head that comes along and thinks this is incorrect, refer to source below , Wikipedia: Rhombus.

a rhombus is a type of parallelogram, it has diagnols that are perpendicular and the diagnols bisect eachother(intersect equally)
