Tor Messenger is built from the same platform (XULRunner) as Tor Browser and, as such, they share a common codebase. However, they're two different applications.

Tor Messenger comes packaged with a copy of the tor daemon and launches it at startup. More advanced usage is available, same as in Tor Browser. Please see the documentation about "Using a system-installed Tor process with Tor Messenger",
