No, you can move it to your phone storage. Does matter as long as you can move file to your phone

@liza tell me about your device, see at system setting than go to about. Yes need root to install custom recovery, if your firmware is android 4.2.2 that use framaroot, but if your firmware is android 4.4.2 or vibe ui v1.5 than use supersu.zip

Cwm can installed if device already rooted, if device not rooted than to install cwm can be done with sp flash tool. Kinguser can install only for android 4.2 cannot be use to android 4.4 to root vibe ui which is using android 4.4 than you must install cwm first via sp flash tool than root device using zip method
