Are either of these a good house plant? If yes, what size pot should it be in and should it have a hole for drainage?

Both foxtail and fishtail palms make good houseplants. They should be in a container with lots of drainage holes. Try to keep each in a pot that is one-third as tall as the plant. This makes the plant look more natural rather than as though it is lost in an oversized pot or topheavy in a too small pot. Best wishes with your palm!
