    Clockwork Recovery is an alternate "recovery" OS for your device. It's like booting into BIOS on a windows machine. Like in BIOS, this is where you can go to do heavy duty changes to the OS (Android/Windows), changes you can't do while the UI (Android/Windows) is running.

    There is a stock "recovery" (named so because it's where you go to "recover" functionality if the OS craps out on you), but it doesn't offer the same hacker-friendly options as CWR.

    Rom Manager is an app that makes it easier to download roms. It installs/flashes those roms via calls CWR or an alternate recovery.

    clockworkmod recovery is a custom recovery

    ROM manager is an interface for flashing CWM /downloading roms/ and initiating flashes. rom manager is mostly for convienience. CWM can run independently, it has all the functionaligy of rom manager, with the exception of downloading roms and such,and installing itself

    the problem with CMW 3.x is that it anything installed with it needs to have installation code written in something called Edify , most of the roms and themes...etc were written in Amend. Before CMW 3.x , both were accepted Amend and Edify. Are you running a stock Rom and kernel at the moment? if so what build and baseband are you.

    This info can be obtained through
    Settings>about phone> please give me whats written in baseband and build number
    also tell me what rom you are attempting to flash please
