Basic weaknes is a subtype of normal weaknesses that has special rule(s) conserning them.
Basic weakness is something that you get when building the deck, or when some other card spefify that you add additional basic weaknes. (So you take basic weaknes in these cases instead of taking some other kind of weakness.)

They both works similarly, the only difference is when and how you put them in the game.

Basic Weaknesses form the pool of random weaknesses you draw from when building your deck. Thus, any investigator can end up with any Basic Weakness.

All other weaknesses can only be added to your deck when you're explicitly required to do so (usually by your investigator's deckbuilding rules).

They are also thematic. Every character has his/her own specific weakness card just for them. The basic weakness cards anyone can have.

To be precise, you also only add Basic Weakness to your deck when told to do so. It's just that every investigator is told to do it as part of their deckbuilding.

If an effect says "basic weakness" then it only means one of those 10 cards that say basic weakness.
If an effect says "weakness" then it refers to any of the 15 weaknesses (basic or not) in the core set.
