It came with a re-primer and the dies came with one that says seat which we figured out is to press the bullet into the casing. The other has a long point on one end, is that the de-primer?

Yes. It kind of looks like a spark plug like the pic below.

"Oh it's an RCBS and the MANUAL is the same."
I would strongly suggest that you read your manual before loading anything. Case life varys alot with caliber and how hot you load them. I have loaded some cases around 20 times in some calibers. Start your loading with light loads. Read that manual. Read that manual. Read that manual.
