You meet a new friend. You are 30 years old and you find out that the other person is 30 years old too. You would say:
1. "I'm as old as you."
2. "I'm as young as you."
Are both 1&2 correct? Also, would that be different depending on their age (How about if they are both very young or very old)?

They're both possible and, as MikeNewYork said, they emphasise the "youngness" or "oldness" that you consider 30 to be. The more natural statement would be "We're the same age" or "I'm the same age as you".
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
