1. I recognise the tree but can't bring it's name to mind, sorry. Edit: Possibly Juniper.
2. Probably a Leylandii conifer.

The rest all look like Norway Spruce.

Most members of the conifer family cannot replace branches when they start to brown. Sadly I think you will lose numbers 1 and 5.

Also I haven't pruned them or anything since I got them, they'll probably always be in pots, is there anything I should be doing to make them grow better foliage are you supposed to snip off the tips of the shoots and the top of the trunk or anything

The only one that can be pruned is the conifer in the second picture but suggest just a tidy up. If you prune the others they won't replace branches. You can prune off the dead (brown) branches of the others back to the main stem if you feel they would look better. As they are in pots a feed once or twice a year would help them, now would be good and again in the summer. Don't feed them during autumn and winter as they will be in a dormant period. I use blood, fish and bone granular food, it's a good general food for most shrubs and trees.

Could I/we have a close up of the foliage please. It's difficult to identify plants when shots are taken at a distance.

I'm sorry Panda, that isn't close enough. We need to see a branch close up to identify the foliage please. For example below....

I can't be certain about the trees. The conifer family which includes all pines, Thuja, Juniper etc is a very big family. I would suggest that the second and third pictures are again Junipers. Take a look at the link below, it may be of some help as you have the trees to hand for better id.
