Question install packages & check the list of installed programs/languages/applications


I need the following packages for a simulation :
GNU tools for text processing (usually installed in all Linux systems
by default)
Bash interpreter
Python programming language
Java virtual machine
Java compiler (required if MLLFScheduler recompilation is needed)
GCC C/C++ compiler

how can I install them and how can I make sure whether they already exists in my machine or not?

also, how can I check the list of installed programs/applications/languages etc.?

also which directory should I use mostly for installing any new thing?
should I use the home folder, or any other folder...I mean,which is the most convenient and useful? ( like in windows, all programs are installed in c drive)

thank you for the patience and attention.
