I also feel that {ghoS} includes more the traveling part while {chol}
focusses on the distance getting smaller.

Imagine standing in line waiting for the bus. Everybody is standing
still, nobody is {ghoS}ing anywhere. But still, there is this person in
front of you who is somehow nervously tripping on his feet. Due to that,
he is {chol}ing towards you. You would not say he {ghoS} to you.

One other thing considers not so parallel tracks. While the earth flies
around the sun, its path is not a perfect circle, it's an ellipse. So
during a part of the year, {jul chol tera'}. Also, when driving on the
high way on parallel track, your neighbor car may not be parallel to
you. If they get closer to your track, I would use {chol}. Saying that a
car {ghoS} to you, its intention is to hit you.

We may all be wrong of course, and those words are just identical.
