-When they are opened or raised does the actual flap or cover have any effect on the aircrafts RCS?
The article claims its the worlds first aircraft to use a dual mode intake, but do do any US or ther countries for that matter aircraft have intakes like this?

No they don't stealth spy, stop winding people up
Wht you see on the photo are simply additional intake louvres that are standard on every Jaguar and several other aircraft too (Tornado, Harrier, C-5 Galaxy etc).
They allow more air into the engine as it is required (ie take off) but do not replace the main intake as the main source of airlfow when the aircraft is on the ground like the MiG 29's do.
