Maybe it was already discussed somewhere else and I missed it. What is the difference between ליד and על יד? are they interchangeable?

They are. ליד is a shortened form of על יד, and much more in use today.

kiyor, not "kiyur" (thank you Xerostomus for giving the version with nekudot, yours is correct)
