You should be able to install Parrot OS tools safely from official Parrot repository using the apt command. OR, even easier using the synaptic command.
At top of screen Click System —> Administration —> Synaptic.

To search for packages in our repository use this:

(replacing PACKAGEDESCRIPTION with keyword for packages you are looking for)

You can use this command to install:
sudo apt install PACKAGENAMEHERE

(where PACKAGENAMEHERE is the package in question you wish to install)

For additional apt command help, run this command to read the manual:
man apt

There are many other types of package formats out there, each requiring different commands/guides to install. I would start with the above for installing Parrot packages. Outside that there are many guides on Google.
