The second is - I believe - possibly some sort of Astrophytum. I'm not 100% on this ID - it's unlike any other astro I've ever seen; however no other genus really springs to mind either.

The last one looks like a spineless cultivar of Cereus perurianus. Give it a sunny spot in the ground and you'll end up with a nice feature plant in the garden.

Yep, 2nd one is some sort od Astropyhtum asterias V nudum hybrid...probably with Astrophytum myriostigma..

First one looks to be an Oreocereus going by the wool... Last one could be a Cereus or a Trichocereus, bit hard to say....

This is my semi-nudus Melocactus. You could possibly have a nude melocactus.

Have you seen the roots of your number 2? If it has a tap root that would get me agreeing 100% on astrophytum. Just remember that someone could have cut the tap root at some stage.
