A spectrum analyzer and a network analyzer are two very different instruments. In the simplest terms, a spectrum analyzer allows you to measure the RF content of a source of some kind.
A network analyzer on the other hand, is an instrument used to study the transfer characteristics of some device.
As far as I know, their functions have very little overlap although a spectrum analyzer combined with a tracking oscillator can do some rudimentary network analysis.
