New front and rear derailleurs?

My dad pickled up a walmart bike for my mom to ride to work, its in almost perfect condition except that the derailleurs are rusted too much so we are getting new ones. Im thinking this for the rear, I have it on my bike which for 2 years I did a paper route on it 3miles a day and it was fine, but will it work how do I know if I should get a long cage or short cage I think the one on the bike now looks like its long though and will it work on a 6 sprocket cassete? And will this work for a front? I assume it will since it comes with shims for either 31.8mm or 34.9mm seat tubes. And if these work with the 6 sprocket cassette and 3 sprocket crank?

Thanks, Greg

PS and I know I have to addjust the high and low screws.

Skip the ALTUS it's basically a junk part, I had one fall apart on me , and not with a lot of miles on it.
