comment “He is I” vs “He is me”
I don't know about pretentious, but definitely awkward, or even weird. "Yes, I am" or even "I am he" sounds better to my ear

comment A word for blowing air into baby's tummy to make him(her) laugh
@cornbreadninja麵包忍者 I think that using this term could lead to confusion, or at least odd looks, as some people associate this term almost exclusively with derision.

Although the resulting sound is very similar, I don't think this is what the OP is looking for.

comment Word for a police man getting money from someone forcefully
Regardless of the origin, if you were to say "The police officer confiscated the money", I think most people would assume that the police office was acting within his official duty and that the seller had done something wrong, like not having a permit. If the police officer was not acting within his official duties, and was taking the money for himself, then extortion, shakedown, or one of the other suggestions would be more appropriate.
