Is there a way to create the ruby or little gem amps on http://runoffgroove.com using the LM741? I am trying to substitute a LM386 for a LM741 as I have a bunch of them kicking around...

Not quite - The letters before tell you the manufacturer. The letters after tell you the package type, temperature range, testing spec. etc.
