How can you determine if two lines are parallel?

There are three ways to find if two lines are parallel. The first one is to see if there is any indication. I there isn't, you should never trust your eyes. Instead, you should find the slope of each line. If they are then the two lines are parallel. Another way to find if two lines are parallel is to see if there are any corresponding angles, Alternate Interior Angles, and Alternate Exterior Angles. If there are and they are congruent, then the two lines are parallel.

Is there a way you can you tell if the corresponding lines are parallel?

If you can find the slope of both lines, then yes you can tell. The slope for parallel lines is the same - so if your slopes are the same, your lines are parallel. If you are measuring (less exact) the lines will be the same distance apart everywhere.

Is it possible to find two lines on a plane which are neither parallel nor intersecting?

No. Lines are infinite, so if they are not parallel, they have to intersect at some point on the plane.
