For the first one, I agree with your result. Good work! For the second one, the derivative form of the FTOC gives us:

If:

$$\displaystyle G(x)=\int_a^x f(t)\,dt$$

then:

$$\displaystyle G'(x)=f(x)$$

You have cited a more general case, but can you see that you have added something to your result which should not be there?

Hmm, are you saying the answer should just be exp(sin(x)+ x^x) ?

Yes, your formula doesn't have $h'(x)$ in it, right?

Is there any way you would work these problems differently from how I did that would help me better solve such problems in the future?

The first problem I would write:

$$\displaystyle \int_0^{\pi}\sin(x)\,dx=-\left[\cos(x) \right]_0^{\pi}=-\left(\cos(\pi)-\cos(0) \right)=-(-1-1)=-(-2)=2$$

For the second problem, I would simply write:

$$\displaystyle \frac{d}{dx}\left(\int_0^x e^{\sin(s)+s^s}\,ds \right)=e^{\sin(x)+x^x}$$

You have been helping me all night. So grateful for your work. I have two more problems that are bugging the heck out of me, but I think I should let you rest for the night! Hehe
