Is there any real difference between the 13' 2011 and the 13' 2012 Screen Assembly?
Are they compatible with eachother?
Just did the repair.
Screen, Wifi and Camera all work fully fine!
They ARE Compatible!

Yes, they are different!
Apple altered the design enough that they are not interchangeable.
But what i've understood is that the only difference is the place of the Camera cable connection?
Antenna and LCD cable connections are the same?
Yes, but its more than that the iSight camera is updated in the '12 model and if I remember correctly the cable won't reach either.
Here's the P/N's
661-6056 - MacBook Air (13-inch, Mid 2011) - FaceTime camera (640 × 480)
661-6630 - MacBook Air (13-inch, Mid 2012) - 720p FaceTime HD
The 2011 will work on the 2010 but not the 2012.

Macbook Air 13" 2010-2012 are compatible with each other, no differences.
The LCD panels are the same!
But, I wouldn't go to the trouble in trying to replacing it is a B**ch of a job.
I used a 2010 lid assembly (from a dead Macbook I own) on a 2012 one recently which I own, since the screen was damaged but it was badly scratched up and had backlight marks too. I assume a 2011 would work in a 2012 if a 2010 does.
Here are a few links to back this up, with sellers saying they will work from 2010-2012;
2010-2012 lid assemblies are all compatible with each other, then the 2013-2015 are compatible with each other.
So The 2010 and 2011 displays or compatible with a 2012 macbook as long as they are the same size?

Yes, 2010-2012 are cross compatible as long as they are the same size
what about the logic board?
