Yes. IMHO, the first one is called PLZ-10 (or PPZ-10? not sure...), while many Western sources use (for sure wrong) designation PLZ-05A.
In the background of the 2nd pic, there are 122 mm PHZ-10 (or PHZ-11? not sure...) multiple rocket launchers
PLZ10 sp mortar , the sph is a PLZ-07A (PLZ07B is the marine version on a ZBD05 chassis) and a PHZ11 mrl

A screen grab of a PCL-181. I don't have the source video, but is that a training round? It's apparently compatible with PLZ-05, judging by what's written on the shell.

It’s most likely the propellant of the round. The round itself is first loaded and rammed into the chamber mechanically, the propellant is then hand loaded in. I think this is a halfway design between nato way that allows flexibility by dividing propellant into bags to be hand loaded and the Russian way of putting everything into a case that aids autoloading.

You are correct. I've found the video, and indeed it's the propellant.
