I picked up these sweeties today and was having such a good conversation with my local nursery worker, I neglected to ask for their true names. Can anyone help me out?

Identification is tough

Most times, the plants you find in local nurseries are those that are easy to grow and propagate, so you're in luck there.

The pinky purple one is Echeveria 'Perle von Nurnberg' which is a common one, for good reason.

The one you've thought is a Sedum is actually x Pachyveria 'Little Jewel' or similar. There are several very similar plants that are all related to Sedum, Pachyphytum and Echeveria which are all different genera but they can hybridize and form new kinds of plants.

The one you call Rock Lettuce is a Titanopsis, or something similar to that.

Finally, the little rosette that is green and white is some kind of Sempervivum, which are hardy plants, so it's not going to be happy indoors. They need to be kept outside and allowed to have a winter dormancy. All the others are tender, and can't take any frost.

Hope that gets your succulent addiction off to a good start.
