"People who are/have the same age as her." Are both correct ?
is wrong and ungrammatical.people who are the same age as her's
I'd say '...people who are the same age as her' or '...people of her age'.

people who are the same [age] as [her age]
people who are the same [age] as [hers]
What is the problem here?
Simply because we don't say it that way in English.
You can be "of" a certain age or simply "be" a certain age, but we don't "have" an age.
Upon achieving the age of 21, she...
Once she was 21, she....
Not: Once she had 21, she... and not: Once she had 21 years, she...
This seems hard for some English learners because in at least some other languages, one "has" a certain number of years.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
