Can you form it to odd shapes. Or is round pieces all you can do?

Any shapes. It depends on how you rearrange the sand. I made a cave looking piece, and a arch looking rock.

I've heard concrete can really increase the ph of your tank and leech stuff for a while, I've read somewhere about someone curing their rock for 3 months and changing the water every day, and still the water goes in with a ph of 7 comes out with a ph of 10.

I've read a lot of reviews on the internet and saw a lot of rock tutorials on YouTube. From my experience, it didn't happen to me neither the people I saw on YouTube.
