  1. Not at all.

    A noun is a person, place, thing, or idea (or concept). This also includes emotions (when properly derived into noun form).

    John, (The) President, Canada, clock, peace, and happiness are all nouns.

    A verb is an action -- what the subject of a sentence does. Note that being is also an action, so if a sentence appears not to have a verb, check for 'is' or 'are'.

    John *tried* to *become* the President of Canada, but *failed* to *collect* the most votes. (Where *word* is a noun).

  2. No, nouns and verbs are not the same.

    Nouns name people, places, things and ideas. Some examples of nouns are:
    girl
    friend
    dog
    house
    school
    patriotism
    flag
    New Jersey
    country
    sky
    Julie

    Verbs show action or state of being. Some examples are:
    is
    are
    jump
    swim
    remember
    study
    try
    sleep

    Take a look at these sentences. The nouns are in bold and the verbs are underlined.

    Mary ran around the gym.
    The dog barked all night.
    My favorite teacher was Mr. O'Hara

  3. Ooops -- the last sentence should be:
    My favorite teacher was Mr. O'Hara.
