*** I have edited my response***

"An identical person came into the room" = A person looking identical to someone in the room [OR, a person looking very very similar], came in.

"The same person came into the room." = John came into the room and left it. He then returned. The same man as before came into the room.

If someone said to me "Do you know, an identical man to the one sitting here is coming into the room." I would _not_ think, "They must be twins". I would think "They must have the same appearance"

If someone said to me "Do you know, an identically dressed man to the one sitting here is coming into the room." I would think "They must be wearing the same suit... " They are not sharing the suit!! They have bought one from the same store.
Q: What is the difference between identical and same ?
A: Identical is used for looks or appearances. "The twins are identical." or "These are identical phones."

Same is used for looks or anything that is alike between objects. "They have the same way of talking." "It rained same as yesterday."

If you are talking about looks, both words can be used in place of the other. It doesn't matter.
