Most asteroids are not in the same plane as earth. The word plane is quite generic. Some asteroids come very close to earth, and that is not a good thing as they could cause serious damage.

Earth is much more massive than asteroids and comets, and thefore has much stronger gravity, which pulls it into a spherical shape. Most asteroids and comets do not have strong enough gravity to do this.

Some asteroids are. Most are composed of a mixture of silicate minerals. Others are a mixture of the two.
