The common endpoint of two sides of a polygon is called the vertex. Polygons have different numbers of vertices depending on the particular shape of the polygon. For example, a pentagon will have five vertices, and a rectangle will have 4 vertices.

Square and rectangle both have four vertices and four sides.

Yes, regular polygons will have all sides equal length, and all angles the same. If two polygons of the same number of sides are 'regular' then those two polygons will be similar (they may be scaled, for example).

Any two polygons with a different number of sides are not similar.

Assuming that each vertex is used to connect exactly two sides, all two-dimensional shapes will have the same number of sides as vertices. So a shape with 4 sides will have 4 vertices and a shape with 3 sides will have 3 vertices. Think of a square (4 sides, 4 vertices) and a triangle (3 sides, 3 vertices).

It has 4 side and 4 vertexes

A polygon with three vertices and three sides is a triangle. A polygon with four vertices and four sides is a quadrilateral.

A triangle is the simplest polygon with three vertices and 3 sides. A dodecahedron has 12 vertices and 12 sides. There is no limit to the number of vertices and sides that a polygon can have - except that the two numbers must be the same.

A prism is a generic term. It describes a solid shape bounded by two congruent polygons (with n sides each), and n rectangles joining them together. The prism is names after the shape of the two polygons. A prism with an n-sided polygon as base has 2n vertices.

They are a regular pentagon and an irregular pentagon.

Yes, regular polygons will have all sides equal length, and all angles the same. If two polygons of the same number of sides are 'regular' then those two polygons will be similar (they may be scaled, for example).
