Squad = Your entire team.
Fireteam = A group of up to four people that you can invite or be invited to. This group stays together on the same team when matched into a game. This is your friend-grouping feature.

Fireteams are your typical party system feature in some multiplayer games. Squad is just a tacticooler word for Team

It probably doesn't make sense to you unless you were in the military....in the military, a fireteam consist of 4 or fewer soldiers usually used for small operations especially when stealth is involved....a squad usually consist of 8 to 13 soldiers....then a platoon consist of 2 to 4 full squads..about 30 to 50 soldiers....so if you haven't been in the military or know about it, then sure it would seem these terms are backwards or not quite sounding right when it comes to gaming...but when you are familiar with the military then they make perfect sense.
