Are there different models for different carriers?

From what I gather, there's only 2 different models, one for the international version (Exynos 7 Octa 5433) and one for the US (Qualcomm Snapdragon 805). So if I'm right, does that means I can use an unlocked phone with any carrier?

Yes you can use any unlocked phone with either carrier but remember the Exynos model is the International phone and will not pick up the LTE bands in the US, only hsdpa.
