They left this question opened in the end.
I still canīt figure how someone like Tidus exists in the past without being tidus.

Shuyin was a real person in Zanarkand 1,000 years ago.

The "Dream Zanarkand" was made initially copying a lot of the real Zanarkand.. Over time the dream people married, had kids, etc... One of those kids, several generations later looked like Shuyin but wasn't exactly Shuyin.

This is what Ultimania says

Translated from Ultimania Omega FFx2 by Ryu Kaze
The appearance and voice of Shuyin resemble Tidus, but the two are completely different in actuality. Shuyin is a man of the past; he lived 1000 years ago in Zanarkand, the metropolis city of summoners. Tidus, a pyreform, was a resident of its summoned replica, Dream Zanarkand.

Be that as it may, Dream Zanarkand was in fact created with the idea in mind that it be the ideal [representation] of Zanarkand's existance, a wish given form. Since its existance was the model for everything in Dream Zanarkand, this extends to its inhabitants also. When thinking about this with regard to Tidus, one cannot deny the possibility that this [was the case] with his personage and Shuyin. However, most inhabitants of Dream Zanarkand would marry one another and have children, continuing the cycle of life. For this reason, the genes of the dream's inhabitants began to blend in a complicated way, and with these impurities, the duplication of [Shuyin's] personage cannot be certain. Even if it is true that Shuyin was the model for Tidus, this would not mean that their connection is close.

This one was easy.
But about Yuna/Lenne?
They are very similar and I donīt think neither one is a dream.
And Yuna happens to love the replica of Lenneīs love.

Too much coincidence.
I donīt think the faith can manipulate love.

Yuna looks like Lenne. The dressphere is a recording of a person that Shinra uses with his garment grid to invoke the abilities of the person recorded, kinda like the crystal shards in FFV. Since one invokes the recording using the garment grid, it makes sense that at least part of the persons personality is carried through as well. :p Example, the berserker dressphere.

But it is obvious that they are not the same person. Look at their eyes for proof. :p
