no.

Two pentagons that have corresponding angles congruent. First equals the first, second equals the second and so forth.

If they have the same nuber of sides (angles) then always. If not then never. So, overall, I suppose the answer is sometimes - depending on the number of sides.

yes

yes. they are always the same but a different scale.

If they are congruent they must be similar.

Pentagons do not have to be regular. Elongating one side will skew two angles and make them non congruent with the other three, creating an irregular polygon.

no.

Some are some are not. Two regular pentagons with one equal side are congruent.

No. Two regular hexagons are always similar to each other, but two random hexagons are not necessarily similar.

If you draw two regular polygons, for example pentagons, of two different sizes, the length of the sides will vary between the two pentagons, but the angle between the sides of the pentagons will be the same, therefore the sum of the angles will not change.
