    1. is box, (buxus) can with time grow to more than a metre and more.

    2. is euonymous, again if left can grow quite large although it does depend on the variety.

    Both nice, but patience is required for both to get to any real height.

    I thought the second one might be a variegated box but I only got it to enlarge once. When I went for another look it wouldn't

    Yes, autumn is a good time

    Yes you can move them as long as you keep them watered. Buxus/Box take an age to get to 1 metre.

    Could the second one be variegated lonicera, Nut? 

    I think they'll both move fine, preferably in early Autumn after thorough watering.

    The second one looks like a shrubby honeysuckle. Growing in a circle. Presumably at one time it had a standard rose or such like in the middle. It could do with a good hard trim to get it into shape.

    Nut, I managed to download the large photo and make a close-up of the bit at the front.  Does this help?:
