It sounds like you're fully capable of doing the repairs.
Take the faucets apart again and bring the internal parts to a plumbing supply house for an exact match up, install the new parts and you should have good results. There could be defects that you cannot see.
-Shower One appears to be a ceramic type faucet
-Shower Two appears to be a cartridge type faucet
Good Luck. e-plumber
