For grapes try Canadice, Himrod, Interlaken.

For apples you should try Fuji (sweet), Ashley (disease resistant), Jonagold (aromatic).

Contrats on wantingto gwo your own fruit.
I kwould suggest you NOT select semi-dwarf but think about what size you want your tree to be when mature. Then ask for that size of tree and they should tell you the name of therootstock. I the seller cannot give you a specific name jthen do not buy from lthem. Semi-dwdarf can give you a tree up to 30 feet.
In general the more dwarfing the rootlstock the faster it will fruit, example M.9 - 3 years.
Learn about rootstock and tree size BEFORE purchase of any tree.

As for purchase of berry plants from you nurseries, I suggest local nurseries becasue the plants are already aclimated to your envoronment.

Best of growing
