Can someone remind me of the scientific term for "couch surfing"  --you know, the kind of homelessness that describes someone who doesn't have a permanent address & relies on friends/family for nights here and there.

Most likely to be cyclically homeless, depending on how often they rotate into having the means to have their "own place" (such as a motel room, or other rented room). Also possibly, temporarily homeless depending on what the cause of the couch surfing is, and the intended remedy.
