I'm not sure about the first example, but fake bacon bits are fine as they are made of soy.

Does bacon count as meat? The meat is cured and loses some of its intrinsic characteristics.

Nevertheless, what's important here is the spirit of the law. You should abstain from meat on Fridays to fulfill the Church's injunction. It has a beautiful penitential value. However, let's say that you chose to eat an expensive fish dish instead of the meat; then you would be violating the spirit of the law, although not its letter.

Fish is a luxury food here, unless you limit yourself to canned tuna.

I've eaten tilapia once before on Friday. Tilapia is a penance by itself.
