What lens should I buy to do product shots in a soft box,50mm or 35mm
Depends on how big your products are, how big your softbox is, and which one you can get at a better quality for a better price. I'm sure either will work. You've got a 14-45mm lens, take some test shots at 35mm and 45mm and see if you like one better than the other.
The 14x45mm lens I have is it the same if Iset it at 35mm as a straight 35mm macro lens?
It depends on what you'll be photographing, but in general, you don't want to have distorted product images. I would get a 50mm, and even a longer one like an 85, to compress the image and minimize these distortions.
Common macro lenses are 50mm, 100mm, and 180mm.
