Like usual, you are thinking about the right thing! I told you it was a lousy riddle!

This is what the clues were:

So alike we, - appearance
And yet think differently. - well, they do

Differently we fair, - use the Ring in Boromir's case, leave it in Faramir's
Yet a common goal share. - to save Gondor

Opposites we are, - personalities
Yet alike as star to star. - physically

Between us there stand five, - 5 years difference in age
Yet we were closest... when both alive. - 'close' as in good friends

One went East, another West, - Faramir to Ithilien and Boromir to Rivendell
Both were put through a similar test. - what to do with Frodo and the Ring



I'm definitely looking forward to your next riddle, Legate!
