Say, do these agents have the same voices as who they’re copying? I mean, If one looks like Lyra, do they sound like Lyra for example?

Nope, but they don't even have to. Everypony (except Lyra and the readers) see and hear a different pony, and even that soon erodes from their memory (e.g. in half an hour they won't be able to recall what the agent's color was like, in a couple more hours they will only remember that they saw or talked to somepony they knew, but no other details will be recalled).

Why do they look like copies of other ponies?

Because otherwise their cover could be blown.

But they have their magical disguises for that. Is that part of their disguise? Do they naturally look like copies? 
Why can Lyra see through those anyway?

- Well, as the spell works, there is a base disguise that is taken by an agent (who is an expert in this spell) by scanning the locals. Remember that time-disturbance in the shop? That was actually that. An agent who specializes in time expansion magic creates a bubble in time, another agent (who specializes in powerful teleportation magic) teleports the third agent, who scans the whole room at once with magic as quickly as possible, then gets pulled out before the bubble collapses. Nopony notices a thing, save for ones who have expertise in time expansion spells. I originally planned to make an extra page depicting that, but now I'll rather work on more important parts.

- The disguise spell is then applied to the agents by the specialist, and lasts for a given period of time. It can be broken by the agents themselves, if needed.

- An average pony, when looking at a disguised agent, doesn't exactly see the base disguise; what they see is a familiar pony whom they know from somewhere, e.g. met once at a party, saw walking on the street, etc. Can't remember their name, or much about them at all. And after that, the memory of the agent slowly fades from the pony's mind.

- That base disguise is actually a fail-safe mechanism, since although rarely, but there's sometimes a pony who can see through the memory-jamming effect. With this, they still won't see the agents themselves, but the visage of the pony it was taken from. Lyra is such pony. (And also, DD. Which will be shown in her side-story arc.)

Of course we can argue how ethical is to copy somepony's exact look and using it this way, but secretive organizations are usually not famed for their delightful ethics. :3

What? how did that work? But... did they not have somepony looking over the door? They did just say Bonbon should be roting in jail right now, you'de think  they'd keep an eye on her. Also they must know the Lyra had a room mate on any acount. So... why were they not at the door?

There were way more agents involved in this event than this two. :3
And one of them can teleport ponies without any sound or visual effect. Takes more energy and effort than normal teleportation, but excellent for emergency extractions like this.

Despite Tavi having a whole different shade of purple eyes. xD
She has enough problems running the guild, being an officer for a secret agency would be way too much of an extra burden for her.

So, it sounds like you were just given permission to ask Bonny why the RIAA doesn't like her. She may not like being asked about her illegal music downloading habits, but she's not stranger to curiosity. I doubt she'll begrudge you the question.
