Default Monolight Gels/Filters/Barn doors - where do they attach?

I have a few flashpoint ii units, and an looking to get some barn doors to control the light better (they are being used to light a background, so I want the light just hitting the background, etc)

My question - do these mount to the standard reflector that comes with the unit? Or do you take off the reflect and mount them to the strobe itself? These are the ones I'm looking to get:

Will these help me control the light from the strobes better?

I might also get a few gels so i can make the strobes fire onto a white background, and light it up a different color. What cheap gels are there out there? I would just clip them on, nothing fancy, etc.
