EDIT: Didn't see the part about Box to Box, Mids, but Capt. Saku explained it accurately above, so no need to repeat myself
Deep Lying playmaker is basically a defensive mid (That isn't just defensive minded) that can get stuck in and win the 50/50 balls, but that can also find a pass from his dposition, and thread it in. Normally, these kind of players are in systems that love building up from the back and passing the ball around.
So yes, it is some sort of a box to box MF, but instead of getting to the attacking 18 yard box, he normally passes the ball earlier on and remains around 25-30 yards out of goal.
Xabi Alonso could be considered as one.
