WAMP is just all in one ( Apache MySQL and PHP for Windows ) and you can download it from http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-windows.html and LAMP is for Linux.

But which file should I download-the xampp-win32-1.6-installer.exe or xampp-win32-1.63a.exe?
And how should I install & run PHP after installing these?

the 1.63a is the latest. the download should include everything you need, exept linux. I haven't tried it in a while, but it has been known to be unstable in windows, like most things though. I would look for a linux vmware image if I were you.

Just double click and All (PHP, MySQL, Apache) will be installed on your system and you don't need to be doing anything else for installing them seperately.
