A regular pentagon

For a figure to be regular, all its sides and angles must all be congruent. So if a pentagon is regular, all of its sides and angles are equal to each other.

No, but a regular pentagon is equilateral. Equilateral means that all sides are congruent (equal in measure); to be regular, all angles also have to be congruent.

Sometimes. For a regular pentagon, all the sides and interior angles are congruent. However, this isn't the case for some pentagons.
