Which is correct this is he or this is him?

The strictly correct English only knows “it is he”. The nominative case pronoun is called for, not the objective case. In the vernacular, you will often hear “it is him”, but the grammar is simply not correct.

Is it correct to say this is she or this is her?

“This is she” is grammatically correct. The verb “to be” acts as a linking verb, equating subject and object. So this is she and she is this; “she” and “this” are one and the same, interchangeable, and to be truly interchangeable they must both play the same grammatical role—that of the subject.

When you answer the phone do you say this is she or this is her?

A common example is the phrase “This is she.” used to answer a telephone. ‘She’ is the nominative form of the word, so it cannot be used to describe somebody who is the object of a sentence (in this example, ‘this’ would be the subject).

Can I say I is?

The traditional grammar rule states that when a pronoun (here I) follows a linking verb, such as ‘is’, the pronoun should be in the ‘subjective case’. It is also called the Nominative case. That means it is absolutely correct to say, ‘It is I’.

Why do people use am instead of I m?

Why do we use am with I?

You shouldn’t use ‘am’ without ‘I’ before or after it; you can also use ‘I’m’ which is the contraction or short form of the expression.
