Plants are in large cups with dirt. Do I need to support them somehow? Do I cut off the leggy parts? I’m assuming I have to repot since they cannot be planted outside until spring.
You will need to grow this indoors for the first season. If you do not have a south facing window that gets light all day, then you will need a light to help you keep it going.
Unfortunately, planting these should be done when the soil warms up, so this will be up to you to keep it healthy until it can be planted.

Hello! I am new to growing Clematis. I live in Ohio. I did not cut back prior to Winter. I do not know the type of Clematis we have but it is summer blooming. At this point in time, it is as long as it was when the season ended last year and is brown. I am hoping just dormant. Was I supposed to cut it down to the ground? Or, what should I do now to ensure it comes back? Thank you!
Clematis has three pruning groups. Since yours flowers in the summer, you are likely in the group that blooms on new wood. That means you can prune in spring and it will flower on new growth during the summer. To be safest, you can always prune immediately after flowering ends, then you will never cut off any developing buds (cos they come a little later after bloom).
If at any time you see buds when you are pruning, you are pruning at the wrong time. These articles should help:
