Resonance structures would not affect bond angles as the shape is based upon atom structure, which does not change in resonance. As for electrons and lone pairs, a molecule with multiple resonance structures would actually have a hybrid of all possible electron configurations so different resonance structures would not affect actual bond angles.
For the bond length part of the question, the bond length does not affect the shape since the electron cloud is evenly distributed throughout the resonance structure so that there is an even length between the bonds that are in resonance.
