I'm confused and worried about this being a scam. Either that or it's just too complicated for me. What are the repercussions of ignoring it and not uninstalling FP. OR, is there an easy way to do this more automatically? I don't want to do anything that would change the way things are working as is.

Google embeds Flash Player in Chrome and the standalone uninstaller doesn't remove the embedded version.

Google will deprecate Flash Player in Chrome 88 release.  See https://www.chromium.org/flash-roadmap for more details.

For copies of Flash Player distributed by Google as a built-in component of Chrome, Google will automatically remove those in a future Chrome update (Chrome 88, per their current published plan).  As long as you're getting automatic Chrome updates (this is the default), you shouldn't need to do anything.  Flash is already off by default, so your risk is minimal.
