Can you help me identify these two succulents and maybe give me some advice on how to care for them? Thank you! (You can’t see in the photo but the striped one has very small spikes(?) on some of the bigger leaves.)

The spiky one is Haworthia attenuata or H. fasciata, two very closely related plants. More on Haworthia here.

Your other plant is most likely some kind of Pachyphytum or a cross between that genus and Echeveria. These are known as x Pachyveria. Or, it could be a similar cross of Echeveria and Graptopetalum. Sorry, there are soooo many. However they all take similar care as Echeveria.
