1. I send bitcoin regtest server BTC to other bitcoin address of same server. I sent 5 BTC but it shows 50 BTC of that account's associated address. It received 5 BTC.

    What's the problem with this account or address?

  2. I used https://tpfaucet.appspot.com/ to get free BTC for regtest server address. I send BTC to many of my addresses but I didn't receive any amount on account associated addresses.

    What's the problem on this server or regtest bitcoin?

The regtest system is completely isolated from testnet and only exists on your local machine by default, you won't see the transaction from TPs faucet because it isn't on the same network. Blocks in your regtest setup can be instantly created using bitcoin-cli setgenerate true <number of blocks> each of which will bring into existence 50 BTC in your local wallet for testing with.
