A freewheel will let the wheel roll forward w/o the pedals moving, but will pull on the pedals when the wheel is rolled backwards. A freecoaster hub can be rolled backwards w/o pulling on the pedals.

Depends on what hub you have, and how you want to do the change. If your current hub has a multi-speed freewheel you will need a freewheel puller. If your current hub is a freehub you will need a chain whip and a lockring tool. If your current hub is an IGH, all you need to do is to unhook your shifter cable.

Will a 14 tooth freewheel replace an 18 tooth freewheel or is something different?

Ok- the question was will it fit and the answer is NO. A 18 tooth freewheel has standard threads and will fit most any freewheel threaded hub. With one exception, the standard freewheel hub can accept 16 tooth and larger freewheels.Sometimes a hub also has metric threads on the opposite side and will accommodate metric threaded freewheels which are available in sizes 13 through 15 tooth. Your 14 tooth freewheel is metric and will only fit hubs with a metric side on them. Such hubs are generally termed flip flop hubs because they can use both types of freewheels.
