When you say shaking, do you mean twitching occasionally, all shaking all the time?

Is the tank cycled?

Oscars do twitch occasionally, all mine have done it and other people have mentioned it as well so there is nothing for you to worry about. It is probably something to do with their nervous system

It is extremely common for Oscars to go off their food, in fact my two Oscars are going through a funny stage just at the moment. Fish can go without food for quite a few weeks so don't worry. As for the other behaviour you mentioned, this is also quite normal. As long as it doesn't get out of hand, you shouldn't have any problems.

Anything you want to know about the Oscar, just ask away and I'll help if I can.
