It depends, but it doesn't matter.  Sounds like you are basically set.

    3. I have used '*-sources.tar.xz' to build my own binaries (custom) and

Fine.  Then you don't need any of the other tarballs.

    -- What should I download to install TexLive by install-tl script

Now off to answer more of your other questions on the tex-live list,
since Norbert answered some there ...
