Trouble reading my error codes (multiple errors?) videos inside

The specific problem is (sometimes) during a cold start the engine will either not idle high enough and die or the RPM will fluctuate and not stay steady when I give it gas. Once the engine is warmed up it will run fine until sometimes the problem kicks back in and engine sputters. The check engine light comes on when the problem happens at start-up and sometimes when it is running normally the check engine light will come on. Are these blinks telling me I need to replace both o2 sensors and fix my electronic air control? I want to make sure I'm reading these codes correctly before I go out and buy parts.

Thanks for taking the time to read!

Code 0 ECU
Code 1 Oxygen content A *, Oxygen content **
Code 2 Oxygen Content B
Code 3 MAP sensor
Code 4 Crank angle sensor
Code 5 MAP sensor
Code 6 Coolant temperature
Code 7 Throttle position sensor
Code 8 TDC position sensor
Code 9 No.1 cylinder position sensor
Code 10 Intake air temperature sensor
Code 11
Code 12 Exhaust gas recirculation system
Code 13 Atmospheric pressure sensor
Code 14 Electronic air control
Code 15 Ignition output signal
Code 16 Fuel injector
Code 17 Vehicle speed sensor
Code 41 ** Oxygen sensor heater
Code 43 ** Fuel supply system
* 2.0 liter engines
** 2.1 liter engines

I'm thinking I have a code 12 and code 14, or codes 1,2 and 14. What do you all think?

specific problem-

The error codes were 1,2 and 14. 1 and 2 were from disconnected O2 sensors. After taking off the IACV, I noticed the screen was very dirty with carbon buildup. Once I douched the valve with a good amount of carb cleaner, the car runs better than ever! The owner before me had the car inspected at a Honda dealer often enough for me not have to deal with any big problems. Just a little cleaning and it runs like new!
