    If you're able to start up the Eclipse IDE, no you don't. If that's not the case, then yes you should download it from the Eclipse website.

    You can add/remove software packages to Eclipse at a later date inside the Eclipse IDE.

    If you already have Eclipse, you don't need to download it again. The Android SDK can be added to an existing Eclipse installation.

    I don't know what version of Eclipse is packaged with the Android SDK tools, though it can't really be more up-to-date than the version provided by Eclipse without using a developers build (which is in general a bad idea for production). At best, the Android SDK tools is as up-to-date. In any case, you can always configure Eclipse after it's been installed so a less up-to-date version can be updated.
