How can I make emacs do something similar with if-fi constructs as it
does with parens?

Even better I'd like the kind of behaviour one can get in vim with
parens, where not only does the syntax coloring show the other paren
but you can jump there with a Ctrl-%

I know emacs can do that as well but not as easily.  But anyway, I use
emacs more and would like to turn its powers used in paren recognition
against the `if fi', `while done', `for done'... etc. one uses in
shell scripting.

In case I am not too late, I suggest looking at  gap-mode.el.  It was made for the GAP computer algebra system, which uses a language with this kind of syntax.
It does a good job of matching and indentation.  It does not do exactly what you want, but since the adequate matching functions are there, you can probably
get some strong leverage.
