1. What are they like?
-They are brave.
2. What is their presonality like?
- They are brave.
(Are the questions and answers right and the same?)
3. It is shaped like a fish.
4. They are shaped like fish.
(Are both grammatical? What is the part of speech of 'shaped' in the sentence?)

1 and 2 are fine, but correct the spelling error in #2.
3 and 4 are fine, too. The words "were shaped" make up the main verb; "were" is the auxiliary (helping) verb.

Thank you for your help.
5. They are shaped like fish.
6. They look like fish.
(Are both the same?)
5 and 6 are similar, but not identical. Fish come in various shapes, but they are still recognizable as fish.
