What's the difference between the wrx 2.5 block as oppose to the STI 2.5 block?

A quick search using just EJ257 and EJ255 would have found all the information you need.

As mentioned in the following post, the crank and rods are the same in the 04-07 EJ257 and 05-07 EJ255.

Obviously it depends what you mean by bare block. If you mean just the block case halves, then yes. If you mean the case+rods+pistons+crank, then the answer is 'it depends'. Read the above thread reference to understand the exact details.

Jeff made it too easy and just gave you the answer...and then you act like a dick...wtf is wrong with you. It's not like this hasn't been gone over in quite a few threads.
