I am not sure these will be correct IUPAC names, but they will be definitely unambiguous.

I would call the first one o-chloronitrobenzene and the latter p-chloronitrobeznene. I believe these are still acceptable according to IUPAC rules.

m-Chloronitrobenzene not p-chloronitrobenzene, for the second, if you're going to use that naming system.
