They look like trichocereus. My guess is macrogonus or Peruvian torches. The flowers are decorative.

I think that they are all grafted. They have a lifespan typically of 12-18 months.
Usually the base piece dies taking the colorful top with it.

No, not grafted. Just some green plastic flowers glued to their tops. Sighing! @Skopjecollection, do you know what these are? Of course you do! What a silly question. Rolling on the floor laughing

stetsonia coryne . Small chance of being trichocereus type echinopssis species...

@skopjecollection
They had some stestonia coryne labeled. Looked very similar but if memory serves the nodes were different. But it's very possible that those were mis-IDS, so I could have a poor baseline to go off of

...ive had most ...common ? trichocerei as young plants at this point...
They dont look much like any of those...
I thought that the lack of 2 central spines would make it a tricho...but trichocerei also have those.....
turned out to be the other way arround...
Also, stetsonia can be somewhat variable.. different shades, spine tones, rib smoothness...
Its not clear cut. I once mis-id a neoraimondia for those same tricho types...
