The moulding is usually called a 'hood moulding' [or 'label moulding'] - and it usually goes over the top of one window or doorway, but in your case it's somewhat more 'mannered' as a feature on a wall over several openings...

The termination at its bottom end is called the 'label stop' [which itself can have many forms] - it could also be called a 'boss', usually when it's a simple 'flower' shape, but that usually implies a termination of several mouldings terminating meeting together...

A projecting small 'bracket' can be called a corbel - if it has the right form.
Indeed a label stop might be in the form of a corbel 'ledge', but not always.
A simple round/head-shaped termination that is ending a moulding's bottom-most part is usually better called a boss or label stop...

I have a few corbels in this model. Corbel: a projection jutting out from a wall to support a structure above it.
