Yes, those shocks should be the same length as your sahara shocks

Free is the best price. Definitely grab those up for spares at the very least.

I'd still grab Rubicon shocks if that was the case just in case you found the rest of the parts cheap in your local marketplace.

See below, I think the sport shocks are not gas FYI - likely same dimensions (compressed vs extended) -

No, they are not the same shocks. Sahara has essentially the same shock as Rubicon, albeit slightly shorter, just without the quick rebound system, which makes it more softer on road. Sport has twin tube shocks which is garbage, sorry for my language.
