Yes, the diagonal splits the parallelogram into two equal triangle aka congruent the sides will stay the same, the two angles being divided are going to be split in half, one on each side, so its the same

The point at which there establishes one to one correspondence between two entities is ideally the 'congruent point'. ex: Two line segments are congruent if they have the same length, two angles are congruent if they have the same measure, two polygons are congruent if all the corresponding sides and angles are equal.

True.

Correct

Its diagonals divides it into two equal right angle triangles.

If you draw one diagonal across a parallelogram, it will split it into two congruent triangles. A rectangle is a parallelogram, with all four angles equal to 90Â°.

If you look ate the parallelogram you'll see two kinds of triangles. Two that have longer diagonal and bigger angle, and two sides of parallelogram. Then, you have two triangles that have two sides of parallelogram, shorter diagonal and smaller angle. This triangles obviously have two sides that are the same (sides of parallelogram). If this two triangles had been congruent diagonals would have been congruent too, since these triangles would have been congruent. But this is not true unless angles of parallelogram are the same, therefore diagonals cannot be the same length. Of course, there are parallelograms that have same angles, and those are square and rectangle, which do have the same angles. I hope I made this more clear, and I'm sorry for my bad English.
