These are called irons, they are numbered 1-9 with various lofts and lengths. They can be used from the rough or anywhere, as can fairway woods.
On clubs such as the Driver, fairway woods rescue clubs and wedges usually have their lofts on them. For irons you can get a list usually from the manufacturers website.
The golf ball didn't spark, but it is very possible that you did see a spark. This happens when tiny tiny stones and even pieces of sand come in contact with the bottom of the club when you are hitting the ball. This will only have happened on clubs made from titanium such as drivers and some fairway woods.
The caddy wearliy shifted the set of clubs as he trudged down the fairway.
I take my glove off when I am on the green to give the glove a chance to dry off any sweat that might have accumulated while hitting fairway clubs. One really doesn't need a glove to putt.
if you are still hitting good i see no need to update them, but if you are not hitting acceptably you should probably update your clubs
