Q: Is there any way I can help? と Can I help you with something? はどう違いますか?
A: They could be used interchangeably, but one may fit better than the other in specific situations.

If someone looks lost (holding a map, turning it around etc), a passerby could say"can I help you with something?" But "is there any way I can help?" would work as well.

If a friend is in a very difficult situation, you would ask "is there any way I can help?" implying that you are ready to offer a lot to help. "Can I help you with something?" works also, but the first one suggests more dedication.

Q: Is this your pen? と This is your pen? はどう違いますか?
A: "Is this your pen?" is something I would ask people if I found a pen on the floor at work or school.

If I had found the pen and kept it for my own use, someone would eventually come up to me and say "Hey, that's mine!", to which I would respond "Oh, this is /your/ pen??"

To me, "Is this your pen?" is a seemingly harmless question, while "This is your pen?" is something I would say if I unknowingly took someone else's pen and they confronted me for doing so.

Hope this helped!
