I would say most likely jigsaw. Not certain if there's a term

Dado blade, jig saw, hand saw, any saw and a chisel, or about a dozen other ways to do it. Jig saws probably easiest, dado blade probably most precise.

The tools don't make the craftsman....

I expect both "notch" and "dado" would be correct terms to describe that cut. Maybe lap joint?

'Notch' seems to fit the description.

Notch? Half lap? Anyway, I'd use a hand saw and a chisel.

I fail to understand what relationship this notch has to any lap joint.

If you cut two pieces like this and stuck them together, it would be a half lap. But as it stands that's just a notch cut in a piece of wood.

Multiple passes on a table saw and a chisel to clean it up.

Yup, it's a notch. Definitely not a lap.

I would say it is a notch for a cross lap, see post 11.

As for cutting it I would use my radial arm with a dado blade for fine work, my jig saw if it was construction work as shown in link below.

Looks like 1 of about 40, 3/4" wide x 1" deep dados, I cut in 4, 2x4's fo make a door drying rack.
4, 2x4's clamped together on the ras, making 3 step cuts(Low power saw and big dado) took all of about 10 minutes or less.
