What were Cleopatra's important accomplishments?

Cleopatra only had one important accomplishment and that was only for a brief time when she enlarged her territories to almost the size of her ancestors' holdings. You have to remember that Cleopatra was only a minor queen of a crumbling dynasty. She only came to the attention of the world because of her support of Marc Antony. Most of everything else that is popularly "known" about her is myth and misconception.

What caused an alliance with Egypt and rome?

You could say money. Ptolemy XII, Cleopatra's father, had been ousted from power by his wife and relatives. He wanted his throne back and borrowed vast sums of money from Roman money lenders in order to get back into power. Okay, it worked and he got his throne back, killed off his relatives, and resumed his rule as an independent ally of Rome. Cleopatra, his daughter and his heir, inherited not only his debt but his struggle to keep Egypt independent, as all the kingdoms and territories surrounding Egypt were dominated by Rome. She held to her alliance with Rome, even though she backed the wrong person in the war between Antony and Octavian.

If you mean in the play, I don't know. If you mean in reality, there are two people that come to mind, Alexander the Great and his great nephew Octavian.

It is safe to say her jewelry looked like Egyptian jewelry of the time. We know that she liked pearls as some of her coins show her with a strand of pearls around her neck. There is also the story of her having a pair of huge pearl earrings and that she dissolved one in a glass of wine on a bet.

What is the meaning behind Pascal's remark about Cleopatra's nose?

In addition to Pascal's other achievements, he was also a wit. Now even in his day, it was known that Cleopatra had a very large nose. There was/is an old saying that one should "pull in his nose" or "pull in his horns", when others think he is being too greedy. So, he was saying that if Cleopatra had been content with what she had, the culture (face) of the world would have evolved differently. At least that's my idea of his meaning.

Why did Cleopatra learn so many languages?

Cleopatra had a natural ability to pick up languages, sometimes this is called having an ear for languages. However, it was nothing unusual for the people around Alexandria to be multilingual, as Alexandria was a trading center and a crossroads between the east and the west. Remember too, that Cleopatra spoke Egyptian, a Semitic language, which was the root language of the languages that she spoke. So by knowing Egyptian it was an easy matter for her to pick up the other languages, especially since she had a natural ability for it. It is also said that she had difficulty in speaking Latin, which was a non Semitic language.
