Gerund phrases begin with a verb form and are used as subjects and objects.
Why don't you post a few sentences with gerund phrases and try to identify them. We'll be glad to check your work.

Can someone please check my above post about gerund phrases? Thanks!

Yes. Both are correct. Of course, your second sentence only has a gerund, not a gerund phrase.
