A four faced figure is a tetrahedron. If they are all congruent triangles, they are all equilateral triangles and it is a regular tetrahedron - one of the 5 Platonic Solids.

They don't have names beyond "the faces of the tetrahedron."

In a tetrahedron all the triangles have to be congruent. In a Triangular Pyramid, the lateral faces are all congruent to each other, but not always with the base triangle. Not necessarily. The lateral faces need to be congruent if it is a right pyramid, not otherwise. The apex of the pyramid need not be directly above the centre (however defined) of the base. Think of a triangular pyramid doing an impersonation of the Leaning Tower of Pisa!

No. The faces of a tetrahedron are equilateral triangles, but none of the faces is parallel to another one of the faces -- they could not be parallel, since by the definition of a tetrahedron, all the faces intersect(!) and parallel planes do not intersect.

No and Yes A regular tetrahedron does not have any faces that are perpendicular to each other. (Regular in this sense means all edges are equally long - all faces are equilateral triangles)You can construct a irregular tetrahedron with two or three perpencdicular faces. To make such a tetrahedron with three faces perpendicular, simply cut the corner of a cube.
