I must confess to having never been confused with the word "link" when used with text frames.
My 2002 OED is probably not much help as it defines "chain" as a "link" amongst other things. For example, a chain "is a series of links". I think the meaning is defined by context.
One wonders if you could define the chaining of text frames without using the word "link".
However for consistency, maybe it is best to use just one word for the concept of joining text frames.
