If you have access to a tile saw, it can be used to cut this type of medium density brick. A better choice is to use a masonry blade affixed to a standard circular saw. This cuts the brick faster and does not dull the blade, but creates a good bit of dust.

Can I cut these brinks to be a bit shorter?

No, these bricks cannot be cut.

Can these bricks be used for the bottom of a metal prefab fireplace where the bottom deteriorated? If I can, would I use grout or set them tightly together without grout? I just bought refractory panels for the back and sides but the existing bottom was thicker than the panels offered.

These bricks can indeed be used in the bottom of your fireplace. They should be mortared together with refractory cement. Please follow the below link to view an ideal cement.

Is there a blank fire-"block" that I can get and cut my own custom size out of? I have a stone saw and ceramic table saw to accomplish this. I need 14 inches long 4 1/2 inches wide and 1 1/4 inches thick. .
