What is the difference if we add reporting services in the current instance and if we install as seperate instance?

During installation there is one option to select features. We can select database engine, ssis, ssrs. But the problem is that we cannot access reporting services from management studio. So I am thinking why we add this feature during database installation.

Usually people install reporting services on a separate server to avoid loading the OLTP server. If that is not a concern, you can install reporting services on the same server.

Not sure what you meant by "cannot access reporting services from management studio". For designing reports, you would either use BIDS or Report Builder. But you can access "Report Server" from SSMS (click the drop down arrow next to the Connect button in object explorer).
