John AkiI feel shame. (It acts as a noun)

Yes, but it's formal-sounding, not colloquial. In everyday English we say "I feel ashamed".

John AkiI feel shameful. (It acts as an adj)

No, we don't say this. Some people seem to use "feel shameful" as if it meant "feel ashamed". This is incorrect in my view.

John AkiI feel embarrassed. (It acts as an adj)

Yes.

John AkiI feel embarrassing. (It acts as an adj)

No, this is not something we say.

John AkiI saw you hurry past. (A Period time)
I saw you hurrying past. (At that moment)

Both are correct. There is little difference in meaning.

John AkiI feel shame. (It acts as a noun)

Right,

John AkiI feel shameful. (It acts as an adj)

Wrong word. You feel shamed (adj.), which is different from feeling shame. Someone has to shame you for this.

John AkiI feel embarrassed. (It acts as an adj)

Right.

John AkiI feel embarrassing. (It acts as an adj)

Wrong word. You feel embarrassment (noun). "The "-ing" form cannot go there. What you experienced was embarrassing.
