"Masonry" door and window trims?


I am not sure what materials these are, feels like stucco but it could also be something like plaster of paris. In any case this stuff frames all the windows and doors.





and some of it has cracks and this one sort of crumbled due to someone drilled a Tapon from the top.



Now I have a hard time thinking these were molded in place are these sold preformed in strips just like regular door trims?

How would you repair it? Just use some exterior masonry adhesive?

When they do the bands or arches here, they glue styrafoam on then cover it with stucco, is that circled area solid concrete or grout??

The crumpled pieces are solid and feels cementitious. If you look at the red circle in the last picture, toward the left side, there is actually a rust mark, which looks like a iron wire, similar to those wire mesh we put in concrete sidewalks and driveways for reinforcement. I think these are decorative, so I don't quite get what I am looking at here.
