I'm not made of money and the 14mm has always been "fine" rather than "great", so if I buy the 7-14mm, will I miss the 14mm prime?

Beside the fact that the 14mm has a wider maximal aperture (F/2,5 vs F/4,0), the 14mm is a lot smaller (being a pancake lens). For example, I wouldn't try to do street photography with the Lumix 7-14mm.

If the latter is bigger, it's not a heavy lens. It just looks impressive. If you can live with that, you could sell the your pancake lens, yes.
