It looks like some type of echinopsis .The little ones can be separated and made to root on their own.

Echinopsis I think aswell. You can take the offshoots away and grow them separately - but they'll only get more offshoots so you're going to have hundreds of them in the end lol. I leave mine form nice big clumps. They look more natural.
Keep them dry and cool in the winter. They may flower for you . They have beautiful flowers.
