1. Select the video layer in the timeline.
Alt or Option drag the replacement layer from the project panel onto the selected timeline layer.
2. Nothing directly equivalent, but try:
Effects > Distort > Corner pin

for replacing footage, an alternative method to alt + drag, is highlighting the timeline layer and the new source in the project window and hitting Ctrl+Alt+/. I use this most of the time since it's faster.
True - I interpreted the OP's comment in terms of a generalised 'shape', not a shape layer... but on second reading, maybe that's what the OP is working with...
Pinning is more powerful option anyway & the OP did mention perspective, which I didn't realize when I posted about the skew property.
For true perspective you need to use one of the pinning tools.
