I'm a gamer with a pretty low-end computer, so I always update to the beta drivers to squeeze out every bit of performance I can get. I currently have 13.3 installed, but I want to install the 14.6 beta. I want to use the open source version, instead of downloading from AMD's website. How can I do that in the terminal? And please explain what the commands mean so I can do it on my own in the future. Thanks in advance!

Well, you either use the open source drivers or the latest beta drivers(Also called 'proprietary' drivers) which is not open source. For the open source drivers you can open the Dash(Press Super key aka Windows key). Then start typing 'Additional drivers'. When you open the Additional drivers window you will something similar to this :-
There(as it is seen above) select the one that says
open source, tested and you will be using the open source drivers.
For the latest beta you need to take this.
