You can't install the remote agent on the Media Server. It comes included in the Media Server installation.

Also, the Media Server licence includes 1 Agent for Windows Licence (AWS), hence no seperate AWS licence is required. You could use the licence you have to backup a remote server.

Edit: It is displayed in the 2nd screenshot that you have attached
