Why is "minced meat" wrong - does MINCE also mean "minced vegetables" or "minced insects" ?!

Isn't mince when you cut something very tiny, like in the Princess Frog

It's minced meat (aka "ground meat" in the US, not to be confused with mincemeat in Christmas pies), commonly just known as mince, and enjoyed with tatties.

Yep! The mince here is referring to meat that has been minced, i.e. cut very tiny.

So mince would be ground beef for a burger, or any other ground meat? Does it include charcuterie meats as well?

Most often it's beef, sometimes chicken/turkey/lamb/others. Always raw untreated meat, rather than anything cured/smoked/processed.
