There are many such polyhedra. See the link below. The classification and naming of polyhedra is not wholly satisfactory so it is not possible to simply provide a list of names.

Bipyramids are a class of polyhedra with more faces than vertices.

The simplest stellated polyhedral shape is the stellated tetrahedron with 12 faces (3 * 4) Others have more faces.

There are only 5 regular polyhedra: those with 4, 6, 8, 12 and 20 faces. If you know of 7 polyhedra there may be a Fields Medal (the Nobel prize for mathematicians) for you!

Regular polyhedra have identical faces.

Polyhedra are named by the number of faces they contain. The names are based on Classical Greek. Over time, some polyhedra have become known by common, non-Greek names, i.e. a regular hexahedron is commonly called a cube.

They are called "faces".

There are a few families of polyhedra with identical faces. There are none whose faces have 6 or more sides. There is no special name for polyhedra whose faces are pentagons or pentagrams. A dodecahedron is an example. If coplanar faces are disallowed, the only polyhedron with quadrilateral faces are the cube and rhombohedron. There are infinitely many polyhedra with equilateral triangular faces: the tetrahedron, octahedron and icosahedron are examples.

Strictly speaking, no. But, as the number of faces increases, polyhedra can approximate cylinders or spheres and so can "roll".

Polyhedra (singular = polyhedron).
