I have two older LNB's

First one is a MACOM Ga As FET Model MC2016-3-1

the second one is an Avantek AWC-42120

Can I use any of these with the Pansat 9200 HD on C Band?

The noise temp is listed at 100 K for each.

It also looks like they have an N connector on it instead of an F connector. (Which isn't a problem for me because I have every known style of adapter.)

OR

Are these nothing more then glorifed junk?

they might work....temperature is pretty high (I have a few old 35K and 25K ones) but you can try it :)

They only get one polarity at a time and would have to switch polarity with a analog receiver (or a screwdriver) :)

ikki those are old type lna, made to be used with a sep little box (downconverter) that was mounted close to the lna. They had those weird connectors and huge cable between them. They might work if you had the DC to go with them but wouldn't be the best to use these days.
