Will a wet cutter cut these metal tiles, got a kitchen to do and wondering about getting round the sockets, and what's the best grout to use...

I always prefer Mapei UCP with glass or metal mosaics. Sets up firmer in the joint and goes off quicker. Less grittier too

Ardex FS grout Andy, very fine and smooth, doesn’t normally scratch metal.
I’ve also used ultra thin aluminium cutting blade on a grinder to cut them.
Make sure you test a piece first Andy, sometimes they can tarnish cos of the heat generated by disc.
And some can not be cut at all.
Porcelanosa do a metal mosaic that can’t actually be cut. You have to make them fit the space.
I’d try to open and close sheets as much as possible to avoid as much cutting as possible.
