What does a 5 piece drum set with hardware include?

I'm not really sure I understand this question, but I'll try my best.When determining how many pieces of a drumset, the cymbals are not included. Ever. Cymbals are extra and are not included in the "pieces" of a drumet, as only the actually drums are counted. A drumset with three toms, a snare drum, a bass drums, hi-hat, crash, ride and splash is a five piece drum set because it has three toms, one bass and on snare. 3+1+1=5. if you took the same drumset and added one bass, two toms, two crashes and a splash, it would still only be an eight piece set. 5 (toms) + 2 (basses) +1 (snare) = eight (drums).I'm not sure if this answers your question or not, but I hope it sets you in the right direction.

Which drum is which in a drum set?

The drums are the snare, the bass or "kick-drum", and the toms. The snare allways has two heads, the top which you strike, and the bottom which has a strip of metal coil things that is held in a bracket and can be tightened or loosened with a twisting knob and a lever. Most snares give off an unpleasant after-ring, which can be eliminated using tape and cloth. The bass drum has a foot pedal, and usually has two heads but not always. Most drummers deffen the boomy sound they often have by putting pillows, blankets, foam, etc. inside the drum. There are single, double, triple, or even quadruple bass drum kits. There are two types of toms; mounted, which branch off of a bass drum, and floor, which have adjustable legs. Secondary heads on toms are not allways nessecary, and are used on basis of personal preference/funds. Cymbal types are the hi-hat, two cymbals that can be pressed together using a foot pedal, ride, the largest cymbal used typically for the chorus of a song, crash, used to end drum fills or as part of the main drum beat, splash, similar to the crash but smaller with a... well... "splashy" sound, and the gong, an Asian sounding cymbal, smaller gongs are often called "China" cymbals. These are just the typical components. Other peripherals could include the infamous cow bell, pretty little wind chimes, xylophones, and more.

It the size of a upright bass and cello the same?

Yes, in referring to stringed instruments "double bass" is just another way to say "upright bass". However, the phrase "double bass" is also frequently used by percussionists to refer to a drum set which has two kick drums.
