Many, an unspecified number. Poly, in Greek, means many. Polyhedra (singular polyhedron) means "many faced".

What shape has flat faces?

There are many. All polyhedra have ONLY flat faces but many other shapes have flat faces such as a hemisphere or an octant or a cylinder.

Which 3 dimensional figure has faces that are always congruent and the same shape?

There are a few families of polyhedra with identical faces. There are none whose faces have 6 or more sides. There is no special name for polyhedra whose faces are pentagons or pentagrams. A dodecahedron is an example. If coplanar faces are disallowed, the only polyhedron with quadrilateral faces are the cube and rhombohedron. There are infinitely many polyhedra with equilateral triangular faces: the tetrahedron, octahedron and icosahedron are examples.

How many different polyhedra are there?

There are infinitely many polyhedra. There is no limit to the number of faces that a polyhedron can have. Given any polyhedron, simply cut off one vertex so that you will have a polyhedron with one more face. Also there are several versions of polyhedra with the same number of faces. A hexahedron, for example, can be a parallelepiped or a pentagon based pyramid or a triangular based dipyramid.
