Answering your questions in the same order:
(i) Yes, Rook+Arrow I term a SPARROW. This piece does not turn up here as the Arrow is neither a Shogi nor a Xiang piece.
(ii) Wazir+Dabbaba+Cross I term GOLDWAZBABA - Wazbaba is the same piece without the Cross move, just as Fearful is the Silverfearful without the Point move. The nearest name I use to Goldfearful is GOLDFEARLESS for Wazir+Cross+Tusk, Fearless being the FO form of the plain Fearful.
(ii) Yes, but not on this board. On a corner-orientation square board a Supercross would be a Ferz minus the move directly toward the player's own corner. On a face-to-face cubic board it would make the four forward Ferz moves plus the four same-rank ones.
