Also how can I launch Tor without using terminal?

When you run the
start-tor-browser script, you're starting the Tor Browser application. The Tor Browser is modified version of Firefox, which has been changed to make it safe from the perspective of anonymity. It's not the Firefox application you might have already had on your computer. (i.e. You're not starting "Tor" as a service inside your good old Firefox that you installed x years ago.)
How can I enable it in chrome?
If you're using Tor because you want to surf the Internet anonymously, you can't really use Chrome. Have a read of this thread to understand why not.
Also how can I launch tor without using terminal?
Browser folder there's a
.desktop file. Using the terminal, copy it as follows:
cp tor-browser_en-US/Browser/start-tor-browser.desktop ~/.local/share/applications/
You should now be able to find a Tor Browser icon in Ubuntu's menu bar. (Search "Tor" and it should appear.)
