It's not the actual serum used on Cap, but rather a Russian version.

So is she exactly as strong/fast/agile/everything as Cap, or weaker/stronger because of the formula/her gender?

Also, what issue do we find out that she's a super soldier?

Her real name is Natalia Romanova.  Natasha is a nickname for Natalia, much like Bill for William.  Romanoff is an Anglicization of Romanova— she has used other spellings, as well.  So, though she was first introduced as Natasha Romanoff, Natalia Romanova would be the formal equivalent in Russian, so it's not so much a retcon as a correction.  It's also been that way for a long time, since 1970s issues of Daredevil, I think.
