Looks like a few coral skeletons, and the posted pic could also be a scallop.

Fully cured means all the dead stuff has rotted and they did the cycle for you. It does not at all mean you will have a bunch of creature in it.

If it isn't fully cured, do i need to put a raw shrimp in to start the cycle or can still do it the natural way

Wait a few days and test. If there is still nothing, add a small amount of food just to kick start it.

No, just let the tank run

If you do add some food, add pellets, flakes, or the juice from defrosted mysis. Adding whole raw shrimp can add heterotrophic bacteria to the system that you don't want

most of those pics is just rock and it's def. not a dead mushroom, they don't have skeletons. It's probably a dead montipora or some sort of SPS coral.
