I am putting away the begonia bulbs for the winter and find that the original bulb now has accretions of other bulb-like things on it. Are these like glads that can be separated and used to grow other begonias?

It is possible but can be difficult to divide the tubers of tuberous begonias:

A more reliable way is to propagate begonias from cuttings:
