A "parallelogram" technically is a shape where opposite sides are equal and any shape with four sides is a "quadrilateral".

Every square has four sides of equal length, so a square is both a parallelogram and a quadrilateral.

A rhombus(or diamond shape) can have four sides of equal length and can be a parallelogram as well, so either are possibilities.

Yes. A parallelogram has two pairs of opposite sides parallel (and each pair of equal length). A rhombus has two pairs of opposite sides parallel (and each of those pairs of opposite sides are of equal length), thus it is a parallelogram. It is a special case of parallelogram where all four sides are equal in length, not just the opposite pairs.
