How can I be getting emails from someone who has the same Yahoo address as me?

This is probably due to hackers. It is really easy to hack into someone's yahoo or hotmail account now without anyone knowing about it. When inside your account the hacker can send emails to itself(your account). The sad thing is that I don't think anyone can be protected.

Some spammers are able to spoof an email address and I imagine spoofing the receivers address is the new way to beat spam filters.
Don't worry, it doesn't mean they have access to your account. Although, there is such a thing as zombie-ing a machine. If this happens your account is hijacked and used to send spam out. Check your sent messages to see if this has happened.
