Is it possible for two triangles to have two pairs of sides that are proportional without the triangles being similar?

Yes. You can even have two triangles with two pairs of sides that are the SAME measure without the triangles being similar.

Can bisector of angle divide the triangle into similar triangle?

Given certain triangles, it would be possible for an angle to be bisected and create two new triangles which are similar to each other. And in the case of a [45°, 45°, 90°] right triangle, if you bisect the right angle, then you will create two new [45°, 45°, 90°] triangles (both similar to each other and similar to the original).

How you can prove that the angles of two triangles are equal?

If the angles of two triangles are equal the triangles are similar. AAA If you have three angles on both triangles these must be equal for the triangles to be similar. SAS If you have an angle between two sides and the length of the sides and the angle are the same on both triangles, then the triangles are similar. And SSS If you know the three sides

Two right triangles are similar if the acute angles of one triangle are congruent to the acute angles of the other triangle?

yes there similar
