What you're opening is
the external drive - that is it
and can be opened from either of those two locations.
The Backups.backupdb is
your Time Machine backup showing the date it was created. The (my) MacBookPro with the recent time is the backup and showing you the time of the most recent backup. Leave both of these alone. Anything you want to do in the TM backup should be done by using the TM icon on th menu bar and selecting Enter Time Machine.
When you first open the Time Machine Backups drive - right there is where you would drag and drop any other files you want into it.
Open a 2nd Finder window, browse to whatever you want to move, drag and drop it into there.
Every Mac has a right click.
1st option is to hold down the control key while clicking.
2nd option - open up System Preferences - Trackpad - it'll be different depending on the model of Mac you have, but you're looking for an item that will be called 'Secondary Click'. Check that off - voila - right click. Yours should be just a two finger tap to bring up the right click menu.
I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
