If a Half-Golem captures an adjacent Golem, then the Half-Golem is removed from play and the Golem is replaced by a Half-Golem as per usual. The line is just explaining the restrictions on Golem and Half-Golem captures of Golems and Half-Golems; in general, this sort of capture is still referred to as capture in these rules.
