1. You are a girl aged between 13 and 19 years old.
(Which one is missing between 'girl' and 'aged'? is #1 from #2?)
2. You are a girl who is aged between 13 and 19 years old.

Both sound really wrong. We'd never say either.
You are a girl between the ages of 13 and 19. (The "years old" is redundant, but can still be put in there.)
Thank you. Is 'aged' an adjective or a past participle?
The word 'aged' is a past tense verb or a participle. As a participle, it can be used as an adjective if used alone or as a verb if used with auxiliary verb(s).
The man looks as if he aged ten years.
(past tense verb)
The aged cheese is quite delicious.
She has aged greatly during her husband's illness.
(present perfect tense verb, with 'has' as an auxiliary verb)
