Mosses can be trimmed back very easily. All that is required is to leave a small portion of viable plant behind. They'll regenerate with their usual somewhat slow growth pattern.
Java ferns and most other long-leaf plants don't like to be trimmed mid-leaf. The best way to thin out a fern is to divide the rhizome.
