Could be tranny mount has dry rotted on you/ or engine mount. Have a friend get in the car and put it in gear while holding the brake down, get under the car (carefully) before this happens and see if the tranny or engine jumps more than it should. Also inspect for worn/dry rotted suspension bushings on your shocks, a-arms, panhard bar, etc...

If you can't find anything out of the ordinary, take it to a AAMCO to get the tranny inspected. Could have a faulty sylinoid in the tranny.

Could be alot of things unfortunatly.

Grinding/growling noise when making a turn with power applied. no noise is coasting thru the turn

This noise may be from afew things the most common would be a bad wheel bearing, the other would be the 4wheel drive is engaging and disengaging, i would start by checking the bearing, check up front wheels and shake tire in and out from the top and bottom, there should be no movement there. if the wheel moves in and out then the bearing is bad, sometimes it may be tight and still be bad. the best way to check this would be on a lift with the wheels spinning. hope this helps.

Roaring sound when driving and quiets when you turn right its a 4 wheel drive vehicle and noise stays there when coasting in neutral

This sounds like a wheel bearing going out. You need to have the bearings checked and serviced otherwise you will be headed toward very serious and expensive repairs.

Jeep hesitates when I step on the gas

How long has it been since you had the filter & fluid changed? A partially stopped up filter can cause what you describe. However, so can worn parts inside the transmission. What you are experiencing is a clue to a problem that may get worse and more expensive to repair the longer it goes untreated.
