Q: What is the difference between public place and public space ?
A: They are very similar.

A "public space" is a social and open area in a town or city, where anyone can access it, and there aren't any (or at least very few) limits to access. Examples include libraries, parks, roads, sidewalks, and plazas.
When this is used, it is usually to refer to public (as in government owned) and private (not government owned) places.
For example, my bakery is visible and accessible from the public/outside, but is not a public space because I own it, not the government.

A "public place" can be buildings, parks, offices, restaurants, etc., pretty much anywhere that isn't private, like a home. Access can be limited and there could be fees, among other things.
Usually, when this is used, it means that you are in a place where you are held to society's expectations and norms, and also the law. So getting naked is okay at home, but not okay in a public place. Same goes for public space.
Q: What is the difference between in place of and in the place of ?
A: That sentence would be arranged differently.

I think it sounds more natural to not use "the" with this phrase.

"In place of" means "instead of".
