There is no .app for FPC, that is normal. FPC is a command-line tool.
You can test it in a terminal window, type:

fpc -h

And it should show you the help page.

Lazarus expects the sources of FPC to be installed for the code completion

This is a separate install, which you can also find on the lazarus website
