Well it can be, but only slightly, you wouldn't be able to make a stiff into a regular etc.

If you shortened a club, the shaft would become stiffer, and if you lengthened a club the shaft would become more regular, but you only make a 1-2 inch change to the shaft.

What it does do however is change the swing weight. A lengthened shaft make the head lighter, and a shortened shaft makes the head heavier. All pro players like to have the swing weight the same for all their clubs. Apparently Tiger Woods can tell the swing weight just by swinging the club.

Will a stiff graphite shaft be similar to a steel shaft?

The companies that make shafts for golf clubs will have a specification listed on the shaft itself such as "Stiff" of "Juniors". We call it "Flex". The flex standard may be the same on a graphite or steel shaft made by one company and nearly the same as made by another company. It is kind of like sizes for cloths. Both graphite and steel shafts come in "Stiff" flex. Companies may use the word "Mens" in place of "Stiff" or "Juniors" in place of a "not so stiff" shaft. Consult with your local Golf Coach or Golf Professional and they can explain more about the flex in a shaft or other things like "kick points" in a shaft.
