What is the difference between angular shape and bent shape?

They're the same thing. You can use them interchangeably.

The two terms "angular" and "bent" are interchangeable. Both refer to molecules with three groups of electrons and one lone pair.
Hope this helps!

Do lone pairs on these shapes alter impact the shape?

Electron pairs DO affect the structure of a compound by creating electron repulsion between them which has a specific angle. 3 Pairs and 1 bond results in different shapes And this is how they define these shapes, by the way the lone electrons and the bonds interact between each other. Recall the VESPR method.
