I have already correctly titled my index page within iWeb.
But when I look at the export to local folder, either in my finder or within iWeb SEO Tool, I am seeing both an index.html file and my correctly named file. So what should I do?
If I rename the file called index.html, wont it break the site?

You do not need to make any optimizations to the index.html. Make them to the other .html pages. Also, do not rename the index.html file.

I left the index.html page alone and included it with the upload to the server.

I just didnt hear or see any mention of this "extra" index.html page in any of the videos or instructions Ive seen.
The correctly titled home page within an iWeb site is exactly the same as this "index.html" page.
Why is the redundancy necessary?

I know that every site must have a file named index.html within the top level of the site.
I just dont understand the logic of the duplicate html file.

This is how iWeb creates websites. The index.html just forwards to your main page.

Oops. I went ahead and assigned tags to that duplicate index.html file. Did I mess it up?

No, it doesn't matter whether you do this or not.
