No, you dont need setup ves base module for magento 2. The package we are including 2 versions of pages builder (one for magento 1.9.x one for magento 2.x).
You just need setup the module Ves_PageBuilder_v2.0.0.zip – Ves Pages Builder 2.0 – Stable (upload, decompress the module on webroot), then run command code to setup:
php bin/magento setup:upgrade –keep-generated
php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy
Answer for Do we still need to install ves base for magento 2.0?
