Yes.

no

Yes, they do.

Similar shapes

Accretion from plate collision, and addition of crust from continental rifting.

They are similar shapes.

The shape and size of the continents are shown accurately on the Robinson projection map, but the water areas are expanded to fill the extra space.

Yes because to be similar the shapes need to have the same ratio of sides and similar angles. To be congruent the shapes have to be the same shape and size, so 2 congruent shapes will always be similar.
