I get that we need to know how to draw a galvanic cell but do we need to distinguish between that and a standard hydrogen electrode? I mean do we need to know how to draw both or just to understand the concept behind the standard hydrogen electrode?

I think we need to understand that we get the standard reduction potential of elements from galvanic cells that involve the element in question and hydrogen. A cell that involves a standard hydrogen electrode is a considered a galvanic cell.
