If the probability of two events are equal, can we conclude that the events are equal? In other words how does one show that the event of getting at most 3 x's is the same as the sum of the events of getting exactly 3 x's and at most 2 x's.

NO, same probability is not used to define "equality" of events. Instead, just say "equal probability", or be fancy and say "equiprobable".
