As far as I am aware the sith were a race of beings native to Korriban who utilised the dark side of the force. This can be seen as something akin to the night sisters of dathomir, kind of raw and tribal, kinda like a philosophical school of thought within a practice of dark side ritual/sorcery.

Traditionally they did not use lightsabers, In the cannon Jedi too, we're a race with the first true Jedi being a called skywalker. Dark Jedi are just as the name states. To be a Jedi you must first be inducted into the Jedi philosophy, then fall to the dark side eg fallen Jedi eg Vader, Exar Kun, Revan, Caedus, Count Dooku. A sith never was a Jedi, eg Naga Sadow, Marka Ragnos, Darth Maul, Sidious.

Modern Sith are a kind of perversion of the historical sith, kind of the love children of fallen Jedi and the historical sith philosophy of darkside sorcery. Note there is also a distinction between dark Jedi and fallen Jedi, grey or twighlight Jedi. Consider these the chaotic neutral, lawful neutral and neutral Jedi for lack of a better discription.
