orchid ID, and should I do anything about these roots?

9 years ago

I picked up this orchid a few days ago. First one I've ever had.

Curious if anyone knows exactly what it is? Its label doesn't say, just lists it as a "multi-spike orchid."

And I wondered if I should do anything about the roots? I've read only a little bit about orchids, and hear they like tight spaces, and roots kinda over-growing out of the pot is somewhat normal? But several of them seem to be rather brown/dead, and I'm not sure if they should be cut/removed, or possibly the plant transplanted to a different pot (like the one its container is sitting in)? Please help me out here and tell me what I should do, if anything. :)
