I believe the different regions of electron density do correspond to different molecular shapes because it was said in class that different hybridizations describe shapes. I this would connect to your question because the regions of electron density= number of hybrid orbitals. Hope it helped.
Yes, regions of e- density can either be bonds or lone pairs, and both affect the shape of a molecule. Lone pairs especially affect structure because they have large repulsion forces, and they can decrease bond angles by repelling atoms away more strongly than a normal atom would do.
