Yes, the ones coloured red are gerunds. A gerund is a verb form which functions as a noun. So, in the given sentences, they are functioning as nouns.

Different grammarians use different phrases to convey the function. So, I don't wish to open this window.

The post talks of using "dealing with". The sentence examples use these words. For me, so long as the poster has understood the uses, I think I have achieved my objective.
