The definition of congruent is...Figures that have the same size and shape.

A rectangle is not a trapezoid. A trapezoid is defined as a quadrilateral with one pair of parallel sides and another pair that is not parallel. That description cannot be applied to a rectangle. It is only if you define a trapezoid as a quadrilateral with one pair of parallel sides and say nothing at all about the other sides, can a rectangle be said to be a trapezoid. But you would have to be mathematically incompetent to use that as a definition of a trapezoid.

Coplanar means "on the same plane". A plane can be a figure or shape like a rectangle. Coplanar points means points that belong on the same plane.

Rectangle area = (rectangle width) x (rectangle height)

Area of a rectangle = (length of the rectangle) multiplied by (width of the rectangle)

No. A triangular pyramid describes a triangle whose base is a triangle (not just the sides which define it as a pyramid), whereas a rectangular pyramid is one whose base is a rectangle. A triangle and a rectangle are not the same (a triangle is not a rectangle, and a rectangle is not a triangle), so it would be incorrect to refer to a triangle-based pyramid as a rectangle pyramid.

Yes, but that's not enough to define a rectangle, because it's also true ofany other parallelogram.In order to be a rectangle, it must have 2 pairs of equal sides AND a right angle.
