Faceplate, which is screwed into the work piece. Used for bowls etc. The other is a lathe chuck, you can mount a bit and use it for through wire drilling. Not sure about the other part, hard to tell from the pic.

Others are correct - face plate for attaching to a work piece (typically anything bowled-out) - a drill chuck with some kind of threaded bung attachment in it.  As far as that little rod goes, is that a pin to secure the spindle from rotating?  Look for a correlating hole in the spindle head.  Or maybe an indexing pin?  Sometimes lathes have equidistant holes drilled into the backside of the pulley so that you can rotate and stop the spindle/piece to add marks or mill/file/drill other features in a pattern (180, 90, etc. degrees apart) - Look for a correlating hole in the back of the spindle head for that feature.
