1. Are these Ross's?

2. Snow Geese?

Ross yes I think, Snow has longer neck and some flattening to the head. These seem to have very round appearance. Hawk I'll leave to Resin. I am not great with them

Yes 3.

The other useful Ross's / Snow distinction is the bill: all-pink in Ross's, pink with a black gape line in Snow.
