Do Not Oppress - But Love - the Ger (Mitzvot 63 and 431)

Is this prohibition not to oppress referring to a גר תושב (a resident alien) or a גר צדק (a convert)?

Assuming (as the Rambam does) that it's referring to a גר צדק, why is there a separate commandment not to oppress him - the same mitzvah appears regarding all Jews! Why are there 36+ mitzvot connected to how one treats a ger?

Acting towards a ger the same exact way as one acts towards someone else could result in a violation of this mitzvah.
