1)It is said that the expressions for field due to a magnetic monopole is similar to field due to a electric charge except that in the former case we take pole strength in place of charge. Is it true?
i.e. Electric field due to a point charge = Q/r^2 Magnetic field due to a magnetic monopole = p/r^2
where p = pole strength,Q = charge
Is it true for force exerted by a magnetic pole at a given point?

No, the field of a magnetic dipole is the same as the field of an electric dipole except you replace the electric dipole moment $\vec{p}$ for the magnetic dipole moment $\vec{\mu}$.
