Plex and Streaming query


Distinguished Member
I have around 60GB of flac and mp3 music stored on an SD card on my 2013 MacBook Pro running macOS Catalina 10.15.7 which I'd like to stream to my iPhone 12 Pro Max rather than store the music on the iPhone.
I know almost nothing about Streaming. I only need to do it via my home WiFi and I only want to stream music, no movies or TV.
iTunes Music sucks and I've had a look at the Plex interface and I like the look of it but I'm unsure of what Plex programs I need to install on my MacBook and my iPhone.
What's the difference between Plex, Plex Media Server, and Plex Amp.
What do I install on my MacBook and which app (Plex or Plex amp?) do I install on my iPhone and do I need to buy a Plex Pass to do what I want.
Any info appreciated.
