Is there a legal (or non-legal) term for an instance where a lawyer is not happy with a judge's verdict and talks to another judge about the case, without permission from the previous judge?

I'm not sure there is a specific term to the lawyer simply "talking to the judge". An appeal would refer to formally having the decision reviewed by a higher court.

No. There is no term for that other than, I presume, bouncing the matter of another Judge who is a colleague. There is nothing inappropriate about it so long as the new Judge colleague takes no action in an attempt to affect the case or its outcome. t
