If an older brother of 9 years of age asks his younger sister of 6 years of age to engage in sexual activity and she happily agrees and enjoys it, is it still sexual abuse/molestation???

It would depend on the specific circumstances, of course, but I think in those age ranges and as you describe it here it would probably not be considered abuse per se - more like childhood experimentation.

That said, even with the same age range, add 3-5 years to both children and I think it would be much more likely to be viewed as abusive.
