- Is it sufficient to follow these steps to be able to install an add-on from
Tools > Add-ons is where you want to be to see which Add-ons you have installed already. It’s a liiiiiittle confusing IMO. You can hit backspace to go up one “scope” and be in the Packages scope.
Or enter Commando using Ctrl + Shift + O then follow this gif:
They both facilitate the same thing, but the legacy version is deprecated and will likely be removed soon. It’s offered as an alternative while we flesh out the new addon interface.
And what about my 2nd question:
Is it sufficient to follow these steps to be able to install an add-on from Tools > Add-ons?

Tools > Add-ons because they haven’t a release in their repository (as mentioned in step 3 and 4 in https://community.komodoide.com/packages/submit-instructions/#pane-packages).
The list you gave is completely unrelated to your installed addons. Those are AVAILABLE addons.
@Tormec is trying to install one of those add-ons and he can’t because it’s not listed as available in Commando.
Tools > Addons lists your installed addons, not the available addons. To find available addons click “Go to Anything” and select “Packages”.
Komodo will only show addons that have an .xpi release. Addons that do not have this cannot be listed as they cannot be installed without needing additional steps.
