Maybe the Evsngelions can morph a small amount of their biology at will, such as sharpening their fingernails and extending their teeth, is that a possibility.

I mean, they do appear to have a certain level of metamorphic capability given the process necessary for Unit-01 to requisition Zeruel's S2 Organ, but I can't see why they'd have properties like what you're describing, and I'm generally not a fan of trying to fanwank stylistic choices into canon abilities without proof.

I know that this is off topic, but why don’t Eva’s possess a prominent nose, since they have just nostrils

Maybe because a prominent nose could be bashed in quite easily?
Going by the phrase "EVA was created as a copy of us" ( Akagi says something similar) a prominent nose modeled like a human one has nerves running through it and could be quite the delicate thing.
Any protrusion on an Unit is going to suffer damage in one form or another and a Pilot being overwhelmed by the pain of a broken nose could be quite disfortunate in a battle?

It's actually not off topic since it is an anatomy question.

The reason Homo sapiens has a prominent nose is because we evolved it based on how smell played into our survival. The current theory we're working off is that the Evas are in the image of the FAR, so it's possible they didn't face the same evolutionary pressure to develop one.

Than why do they even have nostrils if they don’t need oxygen to live?

That's hard to say without more insight into the FAR. Perhaps they're the vestigial remnants of a more sophisticated nasal structure that just hasn't disappeared yet. Perhaps smell was useful to a limited extent but not enough to warrant a more complex nose. Perhaps their nose is actually more sophisticated than it looks but I'd completely internalised. Perhaps the FAR did breathe and their artificial creations wed liberated from that requirement. There's just no way to know.

I was always confused by one subject, do Eva’s have skin, or are they skinless, cause sometimes they look like they have just muscle.

They do have skin, yes, it just appears to be very tightly pulled over their musculature. That I think is just a common stylistic thing with anime.

Well you wouldn't want the Units to move any larger amount of deadweight around. This deadweight could simply be body fat.
This would result in a much thinner skin that follows the lines of the body like the Plugsuit the Pilot.

Rather simple fan answer to the nebulous canon lore there is.

A chubby Eva would be kinda useless
