I just have a couple questions about parts on an F-16

In summary, an F-16 has multiple parts including the wings, engines, cockpit, landing gear, and avionics. It typically has one engine, although some models may have two. The wings provide lift, stability, and control during flight while the cockpit is where the pilot sits and controls the aircraft. Avionics refers to the electronic systems that aid in navigation, communication, and targeting, such as radar, navigation systems, and weapons systems.

Hello I am just curious about something. In the image above, the spike shaped thing at #1, and the long thing at #2, what are those and what are their purposes? Since I don't know what they're called I can't google them lol. My current guess is that #2 is a mount for missiles, and #1 has something to do with mid-air refueling.
