cactus identification for repotting compost choice

Could you please tell me what type of cactus is the guy on the far left in the first photo in this link?

Mini Cactus x 3 Assorted [1]

or the front one in this link?

Pink Boob Pot [2]

I have that mini one and I’ve managed to give it rot. I have just cut off the bottom rotted part and need to choose the appropriate soil to re-pot and try to save it!!! Your site says apparently if it’s a tropical variety you want a bit of peat in the soil if it’s a desert variety you don’t. Thanks!!!
