I definitely recommend you to read the topics in the links provided by Dan. In a nutshell, a geoprocessing package is used to share a geoprocessing to with other persons that have access to ArcGIS Desktop software. A geoprocessing tool can be published to ArcGIS Enterprise (Server) and consumed by web applications and thereby shared to users that do not have access to ArcGIS Desktop software.
