I've tried to work it out myself but I'm just stuck on what I'm misunderstood.

The code:

func _ready():  
for i in range(3):
    Agent["Name"] = Names[randi() % Names.size()]
    Agent["Persuade"] = randi() % 10 + 1
    Agent["Combat"] = randi() % 10 + 1
    Agent["Stealth"] = randi() % 10 + 1
    Agent["Hacking"] = randi() % 10 + 1
    i += 1

The result:

[{Combat:5, Hacking:3, Image:1, Name:Test, Persuade:6, Stealth:9}, {Combat:5, Hacking:3, Image:1, Name:Test, Persuade:6, Stealth:9}, {Combat:5, Hacking:3, Image:1, Name:Test, Persuade:6, Stealth:9}]

Each time I run the program it will generate different results, but within the actual generation the numbers will always be the same. I want them to be different for each agent.

Your issue has nothing to do with the random functions of GDScript.

You are appending three time the same "Agent" object. The list is not creating a copy, it only store a reference to the object. So in reality in each pass of the loop you are modifying the same object. You have to instantiate a new object at the beginning of the for.
