    Your 1. is wrong, ayed. The two possibilities are
    1. You appear / seem to be ....
    2. It seems / appears (that) you are ...
    I cannot detect any difference in meaning between them.
     
  3. Se16teddy is right, ayed. Besides, there may be some stylistic difference there but I personally would need more context for each occasion of its use to determine it.
