They both look like young Flowerhorns to me, Large impressive fish when adult size.
Large tank with lot's of filtration and suitable tankmates capable of sticking up for themselves will be needed.These fish grow quickly with proper care.

80 to 82 degrees F would suit the Flowerhorns.Green terror would appreciate around 78 degrees F

From the pictures you have shown may be a little too early to tell but no frontal KOK is shown in development. The females have more of a slope down from the head area with no KOK development which generally is what i see in your pictures.

Flowerhorns get huge I do hope that you have suitable tank space for these.
