I've been looking on the Internet for an answer and haven't found a concrete one. If I want to change the runlevel it is okay to use just init or do I always have to call it through telinit.

I've read that telinit is in fact a symlink to init. If this is correct, can I use them interchangeably?

The manual page telinit(8) answers your question: use telinit.

telinit may be used to change the system runlevel.
