​These are separate packages. Amber14.tar.bz2 is part of the paid version
of Amber. See -- right near the top it talks about
these two components, with instructions and information about each one. If
you have a paid license, then yes, you should have Amber14.tar.bz2

​​No idea. And actually, it's worth upgrading to AmberTools 15 (which is
fully compatible with Amber 14). In general, if you want to make sure that
you have the "correct" copy of something, you generally compare the md5sum
(or other hash) of the file you downloaded to the "reference" hash that the
distributor (in this case Amber) lists for that file. You can see the
md5sum of the AmberTools15.tar.bz2 file here:
