The first type of snails you describe sound like pond snails. I've seen these
munch on plants, and I think they are destructive and a nuisance.
The second type of snails you mention sound somewhat like limpets. I don't
know much about these, so I won't offer any information.
Hopefully, someone else will be able to more accurately identify your snails.
