Have small pill bug looking bugs on new squash plants. Creating holes in stems. Are these nymph squash bugs? What can I do to save plant?

They really are pill bugs and they are eating your cucumbers.

I agree Normally they eat decaying plant material, but they will eat young plants. You have the evidence in your pic.
