e. Characteristics of the cap (color, texture, concical/spherical, convex/concave, etc) white, smooth, look at pics
f. Spore print color (very important!) havent made one yet.. but will
g. Color that the mushroom briuses ??? dont know
h. Scent of mushroom sweet, yet musty... soft smell, cold smell

These are just guesses until all the data's in, but:

The first looks like a Lepiota. We need to know about bruising in the stem and cap. Cut the mushroom in half vertically and watch the color changes for a couple minutes. Watch the cap and stem independently of each other. We also still need to verify the spore print. Many of the large Lepiotas are excellent edibles, but there are also deadly poisonous Lepiotas, so get an ID before you eat.

The second one is tougher, but guessing from your comment about staining your fingers "redishbrown", I'll guess they are Cortinarius. If so, there may be some spiderweb-like material on the stem where a ring might be on many mushrooms (please check). There are other mushrooms with that color spore print as well. None of them are active, and some of them are deadly poison.

Also, and this is important for identification, were there any trees nearby (within 10 or 20 feet)?

Happy mushrooming!
