a)

Chin - 1 passes to 2, shuffle cuts off 5's backscreen at the high post, 2 swings the ball to 3.

1 looks for a layup off a pass from 2 or 3, and can exit low or post up (shown).

If X5 helps on the backscreen, 5 may be open inside.

3 backcuts if overplayed.

Here 5 and 2 stagger screen for 4.

See Quick hitters - Diagonal backscreen to stagger.

b)

Here they run chin and 2 cuts weakside using 5, setting up a flarescreen for 3 on a post entry to 1.

NBA Coaches Playbook - 5 backscreens for 1 then screens at the other elbow for 2, who cuts weakside. The other option is that 2 uses the elbow screen to get a pass from 3 for a shot or drive.

See Flarescreen, also Chin flow, Side pick and roll.
