They can climb as they tried to do it.

I found around 2 queen ants in my bed room (I think they were queens) of different species and 1 died and also going a gaster ant queen (I think it's queen could be drone but idk) earlier in the day

That is Colobopsis leonardi, a very interesting species that uses its cork-like head to block the nest entrance. They are quite slow growing however.

Do I need to feed them?

You should really research this before you ask. According to my 1 minute of research, Colobopsis spp. are semi-claustral
