I'm pretty sure that this is a Canary Island date palm.
They are somewhat common in Central Florida.

thats what i thought.
Under the palm there seems to be seedlings growing from dropped seed. but im not sure.
they look a long thick single blade of grass, Are these ok to remove and place in a pot?

I would wait until there are a few "blades" and there's a little bit of a base forming to allow them to start developing a root system. At the single blade stage, they may only have 1 or 2 roots that if broken, would mean the plant dies.

It looks like there's a couple more of those palms planted along the fence. Are those your palms or somebody else's? If yours, I would move the two small ones planted along the fence. Those palms get huge, and to have 3 of them planted so close together is not a good idea.
