There are 64bit versions of both so there is no need to install the

Most of them will also have 64bit versions as well.

No idea but I will not be surprised if 64bit versions are available for
them as well.

Most often than not they don't run out of the box in fedora without some
playing around anyway (you have to label some libs textrel_shlib_t,
provide links for things like /usr/share/X11/rgb.txt because they ship
their own version of libX11 which expects files under /usr/X11R6 etc.)
