are infinitive clause and participle clause correct

Terms like to-clause, infinitive clause or participle clause are often mentioned.

Are these terms grammatically correct?

for example, in the sentence:

Having gone through ups and downs, John and Tom are now good friends.

"having gone through ups and downs" is said to be a participle clause, but it has neither a subject nor verb.

Are we having a trend of doing away with phrases?
