Can you post pictures?
The first will give you bad crowntails or HMs with web reduction.
The second will give you HMs and super deltas.
If your fish is actually a RT you might get fry with bad scales and spine issues.

First pair will give you HM/delta with little and uneven web reduction. You need to breed siblings further to eventually get HMCT. Don't do this cross if you're more to working towards HM (non CT). Offspring will show web reduction for generations. Sometimes web reduction will only affect one of the fins.

Second pair is risky. You may fix the rose effect into your line. If you want to breed your RT, get a 4 ray or less (super delta) female. You will end up with HM and delta - hopefully no rose.
