The white fuzzy insects are probably mealybugs. These little sucking insects have a cottony-looking substance covering them. You can remove them by dabbing them with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol. In a day or two you should be able to peel them off with your fingernail or with a toothpick. Good luck with your orchids.
