They are 2 of the many names of G-d, each one referring to a 
different aspect of G-d.  Interchangeable is not a valid context 
here, the names are used in different places according to which 
different aspects of G-d are in play.


BTW, another interesting data point is that SHEM ADONAI [lit., name
of Adonai] is very frequent, while SHEM ELOHIM is not.  Clearly, YHWH
and Elohim were not interchangeable.
