so are those cutters or are they indentations to be able to pipe?

They are cutters but personally although I use them on occasion I do find them a tad tricky.

I have them. I purchased them from Amazon.

They are tricky. Fondant has to be VERY thin and I usually let it sit a minute or 2 before I use it.

Looks like the same ones to me yes. I can't guarantee that but they do look the same. They are a cutter. You press them into the fondant/gumpaste then smack them to release the letter. I usually hit them at an angle on my small roller.

Here is a link to the company that makes them with a video showing how they use them.

Definitely Tappits, I have that exact one.  Allow yourself some time the first time you use them as it can be a little tricky to get the hang of it, but once you get it they are easy to use.  As Cakeladynh says you have to roll the fondant very thin and allow to dry a little before using, I also find dusting with a little cornflour helps them not stick.  If your letters are sticking in the tappit, roll your fondant thinner, dust with a little cornflour and try again.

I have these also.  If you cover the fondant with plastic wrap and then press the mold over the plastic wrap into the fondant you will have no issues with sticking.  I do this also for the Wilton small letters that also stick it works like a charm.  Just make sure that the plastic wrap is smooth and no wrinkles.
