Mandaly says:

1.
We use the word 'ale' in the first instance.
Koulè chemiz la pa ale avèk koulè pantalon an.
The color of his shirt does not match the color of his pants.

And for the second sentence, we'd use the word 'koresponn'.
Mo itilizatè oubyen modpas ou antre a pa koresponn ak sa w genyen nan fichye w la.
This username or password that you put does not match the one we have on file

2. If we're not talking about competition or a game as in yon match foutbòl, we don't usually use the Creole  word for match as noun.
It's a match or they are a match would be translated as: Yo ale, Yo sanble, Yo ale ansanm, or yo egal.

3. To suit - apwopriye, ale, sanble

This house suits you - Kay la ale avè w.
This dress does not suit the occasion. - Jip la pa apwopriye pou okazyon an.
This lifestyle does not suit you at all. - Estil lavi sa pa sanble w ditou.

Si se pa gras ou, m pa ta egziste

Paske w se Bondye…
