PPP advertises the IP address of the peer as a directly connected  /32  due to peer neighbour-route feature that enables peers to have IPs on different subnets.

So if you want to get rid of this /32 you must enter this in interface config:

no peer neighbour-route (on each side)

or change encapsulation to hdlc with the interface config command no encapsulation ppp

Concerning the communication with your own IP on a serial link( whether it is ppp or hdlc) ,what you observe is normal and can't be changed.When communicating with your IP the packet is sent on the link, goes to peer which sends it back to you.
