They are completely different. Clotted cream, also called Devonshire cream, is made by heating unpasteurized milk until a layer of cream forms on the surface. The mixture is then cooled, and the cream skimmed off. It has a butterfat content between 55 percent and 63 percent. Unlike creme fraiche it is not a cultured milk product, and is typically eaten as a ...
Cheese is a cultured product, so you should follow the advice in the question: How do you know when a cultured item is no longer safe to consume? Since it's been acidified and (if it's store bought) probably also pasteurized, it's very unlikely that any harmful bacteria would be able to compete with the "good" bacteria. Most cheese never go bad in this way ...
Here are some fairly complete, although fairly long, instructions for making homemade Marscapone. Any cream cheese (such as Philadelphia) could make a reasonable substitute, with extra cream added if necessary.

Mix it with peaches or blackberries, along with a reduction of some of their juice. Will go well on a cheesecake or tart, or as a more refreshing replacement for custard on a crumble.
You probably wont be able to get that exact result with a pastry bag because the almost perfect square grid they are divided into. I still think a pastry bag will be your best bet. I am not sure were you got that picture but my guess is that the tiramisu was machine made and the marks and peaks are from the tooling that was made for the machine to deliver ...
