The same as between "it looks like" and "it seems". They are synonyms in this context.

Похоже is used when people look like someone else. Кажется is 'it seems'. I didnt know there was any context where they are interchangable

Wondering the same. I am ok with my ответ being неправ since it asked for it looks like, not, it seems, but i would like to know if кажется он готов is grammatical. Кажется я не знаю!

Yes, it is wrong. "Ли" is only used in questions and question-like sentences. For example: Проверь, готов ли он. Check if he is ready.
