Stupid Question about Tie Rods and idler arm

The car is the '79 300SD. I want new tie rod ends. Do I buy two right tie rod ends for the right tie rod? Or is there a difference between the outer and inner tie rod?
I am looking to order an idler arm for the same car. Whenever I look at the pictures of the part all it shows is a bolt, dust cap, washer, nut, and the two bushings. Isn't the idler arm the piece that the bolt is holding in? If not, then what is the part that the bolt (idler arm) is holding down? I think mine is worn, (that arm that the bolt is holding). Does anyone know the name of that part? I will attach a picture of the supposed idler arm from fastlane shortly.

The pic from other sites is exactly the same.
