Is 'item' nothing but a fancy word for 'thing'?

More or less but there are occasions where they are not interchangeable. For example I would never say “There is a mysterious item in space” using “thing” is more appropriate here. Also, I would never place an order like this “I need to order thing number 56.” Item is a specific object here. Anyway this link will give you a side by side comparison:

I would say so, yes. They're what's called synonyms.
