We are using FNMS 2018 R1 version. How can we check whether the above hotfixes are installed on our FNMS or not?

There is no easy way. You can only check if, what a hotfix would have changed, is there (e.g. newer files or changed code). In case of the 2019 R1 hotfixes, they only changed  stored procedures. So I compared stored procedures form the DB with the SQL code form the hotfix. It's a bit of work.
