They're only NOP is GST_DISABLE_GST_DEBUG is defined. If it isn't, the
functions prototypes are included above there:

void            gst_debug_set_threshold_for_name (const gchar *         name,
                                                 GstDebugLevel          level);
void            gst_debug_unset_threshold_for_name (const gchar *       name);

The function bodies are in gstinfo.c, again when GST_DISABLE_GST_DEBUG is not defined.

Yes, that should work fine, although there's no categories that match here, "GST_*" would work better.
