Assuming you're referring to the object rather than the act, then I believe so. I hadn't thoroughly read through your riddles before writing mine.

Default confirming Peeps' guess for Traveller and Mystery

So are the two of you (Glen and Peeps) talking about the Stone Table?

Can't definitively speak for Glen, but I'm not.

Default on Traveller and Mystery

Okay, Glen and Peeps
Here is another guess. Are you talking about the Stone Knife on the table on Ramandu's Island in care of that retired-star? Although it was used in the wicked act of slaying Aslan, because of the Deeper Magic from before the dawn of time a nobler outcome resulted. And now it sits at Aslan's table and must not be used wantonly, but with circumspection and honor because of its part in Aslan's story....

The Traveler

Though grey and legless I may be
I have traversed the land and sea,
And at a reverend board my seat
Is honored, even by the great.

Mystery

Mystery! That wicked act which makes others to weep
Be noble too, thanks to a Magic Deep,
That battler which lie still while quarrellers sleep
Be given to unshining star to keep.

Correct, as regards Mystery. 'Battler' is a reference to the fact that the White Witch fought with it during the Battle of Beruna, and the quarrellers are of course the three lords who fought and seized the knife, and now lie sleeping.

My riddle only refers to the knife.

These don't have anything to with the different forms Aslan appears in during the Dawn Treader voyage, do they?

Quite correct. (Which is to say, yes they don't )

Does the riddle have anything to do with VDT?
